Types of noise we can help with

We will investigate ongoing or regular noise problems. If the noise is a one-off or limited in duration, for example, a party, it is unlikely we will be able to help you. The exception to this is alarms.

Further details about alarms

 Other examples of noise that we are unlikely to help with are:

  • children playing, for example in a garden, public space or park
  • babies crying
  • voices unless it is unreasonably loud or at unreasonable times
  • everyday domestic noise, for example washing machines, vacuuming, mowing lawns, boilers
  • rowdy behaviour outside – this is a police matter
  • traffic noise including essential roadworks and maintenance
  • railway noise including essential maintenance
  • aircraft noise
