How to approach a noisy neighbour or business

Please contact your neighbour first, providing it is safe to do so. 

Tips on speaking to a noisy neighbour or business

  • remain polite and calm at all times, raising your voice or behaving in a threatening manner will aggravate the situation and is best avoided.
  • explain to them what’s disturbing you and your family and tell them how and when you are being disturbed.
  • invite them into your home to witness the disturbance so they can hear it for themselves (if it is safe to do so).
  • remember that you are trying to find a solution for the future that both you and your neighbours can live with.
  • do not put too much of your efforts into raising problems of the past.
