The North West had the biggest increase, rising from 23,338 complaints in 2019 to 32,792 in 2020 – a 41 per cent increase year over year.
This is according to data gathered through Freedom of Information requests sent to almost 200 UK councils.
Data analysts then crunched the numbers to reveal the extent of the complaints.
Leeds recorded the highest number of complaints overall in the last five years, with 65,847 received by the council between 2016 and 2021.
Loud music was the main cause of complaints.
