Reporting anonymously

It is not possible to report nuisance anonymously because that way we are unable to inform you what is being done about it. In addition, we prevent abuse. Your details will never be disclosed to the persons you file a report about.

Filing a report outside of opening hours

For urgent reports outside opening hours of the municipality of Leeuwarden, please call the police, telephone number 0900-8844.

What happens after my report?

The Nuisance Reporting Centre will contact you within 10 working days. You will be asked questions to clarify precisely what kind of nuisance you are experiencing. Some examples:

  • What does the nuisance consist of?
  • How long have you been experiencing the nuisance?
  • When do you experience the nuisance?
  • Who is causing the nuisance?
  • Have you reported the nuisance before, and if so, to who?
  • What do you want to be done about the nuisance?
  • Have you spoken to the person causing the nuisance?

How long it will take to stop the nuisance depends on the situation. It may take some time to eliminate the nuisance.

Recurring nuisance

It is important that you always report such matters. The Meldpunt Overlast registered all reports. The records show how serious the nuisance is. The records show how serious the nuisance is, which is important information for any necessary legal measures, such as an eviction.
