A man who upset his neighbours by playing loud music has had noise equipment seized and will have to pay more than £100 into court.
Darren Tite pleaded guilty, when he appeared at Norwich Magistrates' Court, to one offence of breaching an Abatement Notice served by North Norfolk District Council (NNDC) on August 8.
Tite, 49, of Munhaven Close, Mundesley, may also face eviction from his Victory Housing Trust home.
NNDC served the Abatement Notice following complaints from neighbours of excessive noise.
The council prosecuted Tite because the nuisance continued after the notice had been served.
A CD/radio and 11 CDs were seized by officers from Tite's address.
Magistrates imposed a 12 month conditional discharge on him, ordered forfeiture of the seized equipment, and told Tite he must pay £85 costs and a £20 victim surcharge.

Judy Oliver, NNDC cabinet member for legal services, said: 'Noise nuisance can be a stressful experience for neighbours and it is important that we take legal action when other alternative avenues to resolve a problem have been explored and exhausted.
'This sends a clear signal to people creating such noise nuisance that their actions will have consequences.
'I would like to thank Victory Housing Trust for their help in this matter. The successful action came as a result of partnership working between the council and the trust.'
A spokesman for Victory said the trust was now proceeding with 'tenancy action.' A court would decide whether Tite's tenancy could be ended.
