Household noise

Noise from people walking, shutting doors, toilets flushing, washing machines, vacuum cleaners, children playing, babies crying, music, sounds from TV and radio and some DIY are unavoidable when living near other people.

Everyday living noise from neighbouring homes is not anti-social behaviour unless the noise is persistent, unreasonably loud and during unsocial hours.

Most noise problems can be worked out informally between neighbours. If you can, have a friendly face to face conversation and explain the problem.

If you feel uncomfortable talking to your neighbour or if the noise is still disturbing you, report it to us.
