Plymouth man faces court for allegedly making too much noise
A MAN who has admitted breaching a noise abatement notice is to face court next month.
Benjamin Whitman of Maynarde Close, in Plympton, was due to appear before magistrates on Monday to face two charges of failing to comply with an abatement notice under the Environmental Protection Act.
One was of "nuisance arising from music", while the other was "nuisance arising from loud speech".
The court heard how 25-year-old Whitman, who failed to attend court, had been handed the notice last year by Plymouth City Council following a series of complaints from exasperated neighbours.

According to the council's solicitor, Whitman has breached the notice three times, always writing to the courts to say it was the fault of his friends rather than himself.
The matter was adjourned until November 19.
