A MAN who subjected his neighbours to loud music and behaviour throughout the day and night has been prosecuted by Borough Hall bosses.
Orito Audain, 48, of Pinchmill Close, Sharnbrook, was accused of living a “reprehensible lifestyle” for more than 18 months.
He appeared at Bedford Magistrates Court on Thursday, July 26, and was found guilty of a statutory noise nuisance and breach of the statutory noise abatement notice served in the case under the Environmental Protection Act 1990.
The court heard that, following requests from neighbours, Bedford Borough Council’s Environmental Health officers served a noise abatement notice to Mr Audain in July 2011.
However, the excessive noise continued unabated and so the council brought the prosecution against Mr Audain.
The magistrate found Mr Audain guilty of all six breaches of the abatement notice and the six charges which were brought against him.
Considering Mr Audain’s financial position the magistrate issued a £250 fine as well as ordering him to pay compensation of £150 to his neighbour as well as the council’s costs of £1,300. The magistrate also ordered Mr Audain to make arrangements to pay the costs within seven days.
