How it works

Instantly record noise nuisance on your smartphone to create an accurate record of the problem and how it affects you.

Once you’ve recorded your evidence, you can send it directly to Mansfield District Council to investigate.

You can also keep a personal ‘Noise Diary’ in the app, which will help you review your recordings.

The recordings are uploaded directly onto a secure site that Mansfield District Council officers access and they can investigate and determine what action is necessary. You can make as many recordings as you need and each recording lasts for up to 30 seconds.

Note: You will need a ‘smart’ phone device to use this app and broadband is recommended so it doesn’t use your mobile data allowance.

Once you've downloaded the app

Once you've created an account, the app is incredibly easy to use. It will guide you through making your first recording and sending it to Mansfield District Council, but if you need more detailed instructions please download and read the Noise App User Guide.
