Noise patrols in York will be stepped up
8:37am Saturday 22nd September 2012 in News
A CRACKDOWN on noise problems in York is to be increased this autumn.
Additional funding from Safer York Partnership has allowed City of York Council to beef up its noise patrols at the start of the new academic year and around Hallowe’en and Bonfire Night.
The extra patrols will begin operating during Freshers Week, which marks the return of students to the city’s two universities.
They have already been on duty for the start of the new academic year at York St John University this week and will do the same from 10pm to 1am between October 8 and 11, when University of York students arrive back.
The council also plans patrols along similar lines and times during the Hallowe’en and Bonfire Night.
