A noisy neighbour has been convicted a third time for playing excessively loud music at her Mottingham home.

Claudia Curran, of Castlecombe Road, was given a noise abatement notice in 2011 which she pleaded guilty to breaking at Bromley Magistrates Court last month.

She received a two year conditional discharge and was ordered to pay £100 costs.

Despite the conviction, the council were ordered to return Ms Curran’s music equipment which was seized by public protection noise officers.

Cllr Tim Stevens, executive member for public protection and safety, said: “This is the third time the Council has had to take enforcement action against this young woman for causing a noise nuisance and we will continue to do so if necessary.

“The playing of loud music causes great distress and even a one-off incident can be sufficient to warrant enforcement action.

“I hope this individual now realises that we do not tolerate persistent noise offenders and will mend her ways.”
