Noise pollution


Home maintenance is essential, and home improvement a popular pastime.

Much DIY or building work can be very noisy however, so consider your neighbours when you are carrying out work.

Let them know if you plan to do anything that involves work on party walls or floors or that will be extremely noisy.

It helps if you can agree a time for work when it will least disturb them.

Avoid drilling and banging especially late at night or early in the morning.
