Anti-social behaviour policies and information

Noise pollution

The law expects that people will put up with a “reasonable” amount of noise being caused by others as part of their normal daily activities. 

In the first instance it is suggested that you should make the person creating the nuisance aware of how it is affecting you and ask if they can do something to help.

If speaking to your neighbour fails, you can report noise pollution to us online, using the link below.

We may be able to help if your complaint relates to regular occurrences of loud music, television, barking dogs or noise from machinery.

It is harder for us to take action against noise caused by children, banging of doors, late night arrivals and departures. It is also not normally possible for us to take action if the noise has only occurred once.
