Noise Guidance

The Environmental Protection Team frequently receive complaints about noise from Entertainment Venues and Public Houses, particularly during the summer months.
A noise guidance has been prepared to assist venue operators and Licensees in controlling noise from their premises and should be considered as 'Good Practice'. See under Downloads/Links.

Noisy Neighbours

Everyone must expect some noise from their neighbours from time to time. However, this can become unreasonable and cause disturbance especially if at unreasonable times or for prolonged periods.

For further information and advice on noisy neighbours please refer to our leaflet under Download/Links.
