I live within Tundzha, Bulgaria, where neighbours often operate extreme loud amplified music systems. Numerous signals are sent, yet no communication do I receive from authority and the music continues year on year. A meeting took place were the local chief police approved of this loud music. Lead Mayor, blocked a legal dispute brought from letter to State Prosecutor.

Children’s education suffers, sure many suffer deafness, negative impacts on many neighbours health of are elderly, the sound system become louder and louder. And the threats of violence from such people grows.

Surely are some Eu, directives that apply to assist external intervention?

The Police have the power to arrest a person for breach of the peace in a public place. They may ask someone to lower the noise coming from a dwelling but they do not have the power to enter a dwelling with the intention of simply asking someone to lower the noise. If the noise is persistent, you may complain to the District Court

Thanks for the responses. The local government is the problem. The lead municipality mayor, approves of the music, sent a letter to the court approving the “party people.” The local chief of police approves and during a face to face meeting . The noise now is 100dB at source -are now louder sound systems available and the problems must compete with each other’s amplified music and perhaps deafness plays a part- and is guaranteed to cause auditory impairment particular amongst young children.

Reply to rosaann No such legislation. Each municipality is with Bylaws, the relevant Bylaw Ordinance 1, the police cite as a reason that allows extreme loud music, although only from the existence that a section of excludes noise during curfew hours. Obviously a curfew doesn’t stop those people playing high sound pressure music, or just random amplified noise.

Dear 'Bg189',

Thank you for contacting the European Environment Agency (EEA).

The European Union recognises that exposure to excessive noise is a major cause of hearing disorders worldwide. In order to counteract noise-induced hearing loss more effectively, a European directive “Noise at Work Regulations” took effect in 2006, establishing the minimal security level at the equivalent noise exposure limit to 80 dB(A) for an 8 hour working day (or 40 hour working week), assuming that below this level the risk to hearing is negligible. Although the above regulations and limits apply to the workplace, the fact that they rely on the exposure level and duration means that they might equally be applied to other situations where sound has a detrimental effect such as that from personal music players; whether use in workplace, or under leisure situations. The full text of the Directive is available at https://eur-lex.europa.eu/L[…]:2003:042:0038:0044:EN:PDF.

As this is not an area of expertise of the EEA, we would suggest you to contact DG Health and Consumer Protection via the following form: https://ec.europa.eu/[…]/contact_en. They might be able to support you better in your research for a solution to the noise-related problems in your area.

With kind regards,

Here is a link, just bear in mind that the digital moving image content is from an IPad inbuilt microphone.

In a civilised society child protection would be here in moments, least a few days. The house does have children. However, the racist municipality workforce and police, Ombudsman, State Agency for Child Protection, local health inspectorate, etc, does nothing basis of the people are Roma.

NB. no quieter indoors. And the volume during the recording isn’t the maximum sound pressure level attainable.

Another night and a different noise source this one is closer https://share.icloud.com/ph[…]ZPQ#Hadzhidimitrovo,_Yambol

The party people did at least stop for a night.

22:13hrs approximate time and the music is now louder than ever with minimum two extreme loud music systems.

Tomorrow is a school day and having reported this to all agencies the child abuse goes on and on at a deafening rate.
