ALMOST a quarter, 23.4 per cent, of households in the Balearic Islands suffer noise issues caused by neighbours or other external sources, says a report.
The figure is one of the highest registered in the Spain and sits significantly above the country’s average (16.3 per cent), according to the data released by the National Statistics Institute (INE).
The Islands, together with the Community of Madrid, are the regions that in 2014 registered the highest percentage of families facing these kinds of problems, only beaten by the autonomous cities Ceuta and Melilla.
However, the data does present a negative trend if compared with figures registered in 2013, when noise affected 29 per cent of homes, while in 2005 it affected 35 per cent of them.
The Local Police force in Palma receives more than 5,000 calls every year due to incidents related to noise.
