Sheffield Council has picked up a unique national award for its work on tackling night time noise nuisance
The honour comes two years on from the council’s environmental protection team winning the John Connell Local Authority Award recognising initiatives that made a positive reduction in excessive noise in the community.
The council has now received the John Connell Special Commendation Award from the Noise Abatement Society.
The inaugural award celebrates ‘unsung public sector heroes’ who have worked consistently and tirelessly, often beyond the call of duty, to achieve the goal of a quieter, healthier and safer environment.
It is the first time this award has been given.
