What fines and sanctions can a court impose on a person who does not adhere to the council's interventions?

In cases where noise nuisance has been proved, an abatement notice will be served. If this notice is breached the perpetrator can be taken to court and prosecuted and a fine imposed. The fine can be up to £5,000 for domestic premises and up to £20,000 for commercial premises.

Furthermore, if the person responsible for the nuisance breaches the notice persistently, their noise making equipment can be seized under warrant and retained to prevent further nuisance occurring.
