Three Rivers District Council works with other organisations to help report this behaviour, including the Noise App and FixMyStreet App.
The Noise App
The app allows you to make short audio recordings of the noise and enter details about the nature of the disturbance using your smartphone which then combine to make an electronic noise diary. This can then easily be sent to the Council's Environmental Health Service for investigation by submitting the complaint via the app. You can download the app for free using your smartphone here: www.thenoiseapp.com
For information on using the app to see the attached user guide below.The Noise App User Guide (pdf)
A free app called "Fix my Street" is available on smart phones, androids and tablets and can be downloaded now! Simply search for “Fix my Street” in your app store. This app enables the user to report a range of issues, (including fly tipping, graffiti, abandoned trolleys, potholes etc.) by taking a picture of the situation that requires reporting and submitting this. The location will be recorded when submitting the picture and this information will be used to send the report to the relevant Council.
Alternatively you can visit www.fixmystreet.com to report issues and provide the required information, which will also be sent to the relevant Council.
Community Trigger for anti-social behaviour
The Community Trigger is a way that members of the public can ask Three Rivers Community Safety Partnership to collectively review their response to complaints of anti-social behaviour. It is there for people to use when they are not satisfied with the response they have received to reporting anti-social behaviour.
