“I feel victimised” - man fined thousands of pounds over ‘noisy’ home hits out at council

Bournemouth Echo: ‘VICTIMISED’: Michael Roberts' property ‘VICTIMISED’: Michael Roberts' property

A SOUTHBOURNE man fined thousands of pounds after four days of anti-social noise said he may leave the country as a result of his prosecution.

Michael Roberts faced court action after complaints about the noise coming from his Southwood Avenue property.

He had used the house as a private holiday let, allowing stag and hen parties as well as families to stay there.

But in July last summer, after he went away for two weeks to see his children, Bournemouth Borough Council officials visited the property to issue a noise abatement notice.

Mr Roberts claims the notice was not served to anybody but posted through the letterbox and before he had returned to Bournemouth, council officers went into the property to take three televisions and a rug.

He said: “The law says that a notice must be served to the homeowner, the person responsible for the house, or the leader of the people making a noise.

“Instead, the council posted it through the door. The man I had left in charge while I was away called me later on to say I had been burgled – but when I called the police, I was given a number for the council and eventually was told they had been in to take the items because they’re categorised as ‘noise offending equipment’ – including the rug.”

He later discovered that all of the incidents related to events during daylight hours on July 9, 10, 12 and 19.

“Being a good neighbour is incredibly important to me,” he said.

“I have lived here since 1995 and I like this area and the people living here. Before all of this, I had received one letter about noise, and had taken that extremely seriously. I had ensured the electricity to the garden area was cut off at 10pm and I put noise warning notices around the house.

“It was a great shock to find out that there was apparently a problem as I just wasn’t aware of it.”

He immediately cancelled all bookings for the property and refunded deposits, a move that cost him more than £7,000.

“I feel absolutely victimised,” he said. “The council are meant to be public servants, but I feel they have too much power. I am really thinking about selling my house and moving to a different country because this has taken away my livelihood.”

Mr Roberts pleaded not guilty to four charges relating to the breach of a Noise Abatement Notice at Bournemouth Magistrates’ Court, but after a two-day trial was found guilty and ordered to pay fines and costs totalling £3,050.

The court heard that there had been problems with loud music, shouting, screaming and anti-social behaviour.

Councillor David Smith, the council’s portfolio holder for planning and environment, said: “Our officers will always support local people whose lives are blighted by noise, drunkenness and thoughtless behaviour.

“It’s regrettable Mr Roberts couldn’t get to grips with the problem that he had created for his neighbours, and I’m baffled that the court allowed him to have the seized equipment back.

“We’ve got a great night-time service and good officers who were able to witness the problem and take prompt action to stop this frankly selfish behaviour.”

This has been the problem in Winton and Charminster for years. Greedy landlords who don't give a s**t about the neighbours when they let to University students who are away from home and decide its time to have fun no matter what problems it causes to neighbours.
Not all private landlords are the same but a good many only see a student/ stag/hen let as a means to increase their pension pot no matter what problems are caused.
We now have an out of hours service for anti social noise problems who will call and monitor any noise. If necessary they will stop it and issue notices but this is hard when the landlord doesn't live in Bournemouth. Many hide behind laws which stop neighbours finding out where they live.
Soon we will have a landlord register where we hope names and contact number will be listed so they can be held accountable.

Having lived opposite this property for several years, I can tell you this man is not at all concerned with "being a good neighbour". He often (conveniently) vacated the property when the parties arrived, leaving them to their own devices. They would be out in the street screaming, swearing and shouting, loud music blaring out and a lot of anti social behaviour - and this was EVERY weekend during the summer.

So to those who say "live and let live", how about you go and live next door and see how you feel after a year or so of putting up with constant disruption to your sleep EVERY weekend!

Having left the area a few months ago, I am extremely pleased to hear that action has finally been taken - I have absolutely no sympathy for this man and I hope he goes out of "business" (if you can call it that).

Some random fat bird shouting out "Stacy you f***ing sl*g, yeah you're a ****ing sl*g" despite her being the only person in the street. after about 3 years of this and the noise bleeding into work nights it stopped being funny.

Once in a whole year we had some friends round and some music on a friday night celebrating and our loudest neghbour came baning at the door (9 oclock at night) threatening us with smashing our cars up and putting widows through! We told him there will be no noise after 11pm but he walked off kicking over our bins, then the police turned up telling us to keep the music down to the level it was as they could clearly see it was not loud at all, but didnt want to know when told about his threats.
It seems some people think the own the world that can be on both side of these arguments!

I'm not a lawyer but I see no mileage on relying on the council or the police but perhaps the Chief Constable wont like the idea of being found guilty.

Looking at the comments on this post anyone would have thought something serious happened and as for you Bournemouth Echo don't your editors have anything interesting to write about?
Why dont you contact the echo in a respectfull manner ,You might just get a hearing on your own noise problem ,
Its worth a phone call.You may be surprised

This has been the problem in Winton and Charminster for years. Greedy landlords who don't give a s**t about the neighbours when they let to University students who are away from home and decide its time to have fun no matter what problems it causes to neighbours.
Not all private landlords are the same but a good many only see a student/ stag/hen let as a means to increase their pension pot no matter what problems are caused.
We now have an out of hours service for anti social noise problems who will call and monitor any noise. If necessary they will stop it and issue notices but this is hard when the landlord doesn't live in Bournemouth. Many hide behind laws which stop neighbours finding out where they live.
Soon we will have a landlord register where we hope names and contact number will be listed so they can be held accountable.
A quick buck will have consequences in the future.
£3 from the land registry should get you the relevant information about any property.

I was a neighbour of Mr Roberts and his story in the echo is complete rubbish. The noise and disruption went on for over 2 years and we made contact with Mr Roberts many times before involving the council.
He continually ignored our pleas to control the noise and lied about changes he promised to make again and again. My summer was ruined last year and not just in July with noisy day and evening parties regularly carrying on until 4-5am. Even in the winter with groups sitting outside in the hot tub shouting, screaming and playing loud music at 4am. it just goes to show the type of character he is to lie like this in this news article.

Another reason why Bournemouth has become a dump. Nothing here for holiday makers, the town is geared up for students, drug addicts and alcoholics.
Don't give up Bournemouth Environmental Services were brilliant and did an excellent job in bringing this to court. The neighbours got together and supported each other to bring peace back to a quiet respectable neighbourhood.

At least bournemouth council takes noise seriously, Poole council does not.
I had to put up with years of threats, harrassesment, and wild parties and Pooe council and the police did nothing.
In the end it was me who was forced to take the law into my own hands, in which case I was rightly prosecuted.

It is of course the councils' job to mediate neighbourhood disputes to a satisfactory conclusion where possible. Taking such action should be very much a last resort after mediation has clearly failed.
It is unfortunate that in this circumstance such remedial measures were not sufficiently taken by the council, as a result neighbourhood tensions have increased, a holiday let bringing tourism business to the town has been lost and all of this at considerable expense to Council Tax payers of which Mr Roberts is one.
The law is very clear with regard to serving Noise Abatement Orders, if the owner cannot be found at the time it must be served on the Noise Makers. This was clearly not complied with in this case as Mr Roberts was away and could not be served notice. As such I can only conclude this case should be appealed and overturned.
For the council to have taken non noise making equipment is an abuse of a noise making equipment seizure warrant.
I sense in these comment posts that many people appear jealous that someone has legitimately tried to set up a potentially successful holiday let and are more than happy to rant and slander as a result of the mistake of accepting hen and stag parties than to accept this could have been resolved to a satisfactory conclusion.
A situation that could have been put right with the correct and prompt remedial action by the Council, instead of its all too often heavy handed approach.
If anyone has a personal problem with Mr Roberts for whatever reason then they should speak to him personaly, casting insults only reflects badly on the person writing them and have nothing to do with the article.
It is all about good communication or the lack thereof.
