Burglar alarm key holder registration

Following the introduction of the Clean Neighbourhood and Environment Act 2005 (CNEA), which repealed section 23 of the London Local Authorities Act 1991, there is now no legal requirement for the owner of an intruder alarm within London to register key holder details with either the police or with us. Whilst the CNEA does allow for alarm designation areas to be declared we have decided not to declare an area.

We do however offer to keep key-holder information on request. 

To avoid having to take legal action to disable the alarm, we will use this database where an alarm is malfunctioning and causing a noise nuisance. We have a responsibility to act on noise nuisance complaints, so we will try to  contact the owner of the premises or a nominated key holder if an incident occurs. If we are unable to contact anyone to switch the alarm off within a reasonable timeframe we will serve a notice and disable the alarm, using nominated contractors. Afterwards we will recover all costs incurred, which can be considerable, from the person responsible for the alarm. 

To register your key-holder details with us please download and complete the alarm key holder information form, and return to this office.
