A council has been commended for its sound approach to nuisance noise.
Brighton & Hove City Council’s Soundscape project received national recognition at the Noise Abatement Society’s annual John Connell Awards in Westminster.
The project was rewarded for helping tackle late night noise and antisocial behaviour in West Street, Brighton.
During the White Night festival, the council created a 3D sound installation with the help of musician Martyn Ware, scientist Dr Harry Witchel, council officers, traders and residents.
The Soundscape, called West Street Story, was designed to calm the late-night atmosphere and create a happy, relaxed mood for revellers.
On Thursday, December 13, Brighton & Hove mayor Bill Randall, will present the award to officers involved in the project.
"We are now looking at ways of using this to increase safety at taxi ranks and queueing areas outside clubs and bars.”
