Noise pollution

Neighbour noise

We all hear noise from our neighbours from time to time - it is a part of everyday life and keeps our neighbourhoods vibrant.

However, too much noise in the wrong place at the wrong time can cause friction between neighbours.

This can be voices, impact noise from floors and doors, DIY and gardening activities, noisy domestic appliances. 

Remember that no home is completely sound proof. We all make noise sometimes.

If noise from your neighbours is disturbing you, approach them politely and explain the problem.

They may well not realise the effect they are having. If you really feel this is inappropriate, you can contact the Council on 0191 427 7000.
