Statutory Nuisance

Noise Nuisance

Noise is a part of every day life, however, suffering excessive noise can affect a persons quality of life.

The Council has a duty to investigate complaints regarding;

  • Car Alarms
  • Dogs barking excessively
  • DIY at unsociable hours
  • Industrial or Commercial noise
  • Intruder Alarms
  • Loud music (domestic or commercial)

Before making a complaint, decide if the noise you are suffering is unreasonable. If you feel that it is safe and necessary to do so, try to approach th person/company responsible and give them the opportunity to resolve the problem.

If you find that the problem cannot be resolved informally, the Council may take legal action.
