Many people may often experience a reasonable amount of day to day noise from neighbours. This is not unusual and should be expected but when noise happens a lot, becomes too loud (or both) and starts to affect other people it can be classed as a ‘statutory noise nuisance’ in law.
Noise problems often go hand in hand with other anti-social behaviour problems. The Council works closely with other agencies to try to help with these problems. These include the police, the community safety partnership and housing associations.
