A noisy takeaway has been fined £16,000 following an investigation by environmental health officers.


In July 2018 Preston City Council served a Noise Abatement Notice to reduce the noise from mechanical extract ventilation system, fridge motor and catering activities at Mughlai in East View, Preston.

The owners, Talhaview Limited, did not comply with the order and ignored numerous reminders to reduce the noise.

No-one from the business attended a court hearing on Wednesday September 25.

As a result, Talhaview Limited was convicted in absence of four offences and was ordered to pay a £16,000 fine.

The offences were due to the company’s failure to reduce the noise from the mechanical extract system, this being confirmed by the use of noise monitoring equipment.

The company was ordered to pay £1,916.36 prosecution costs and £180 victims surcharge. In total, £18,096.36 is to be paid within 28 days.

Councillor Peter Moss, Deputy Leader and Cabinet member for planning and regulation, said: “I am pleased with the outcome of this prosecution. It sends a clear message to the business community to always be considerate of their neighbours, and that their actions can affect those around them in many different ways; in this case it was excessive noise.”

The takeaway has now closed and the premises is up for rent.
