Complaints about noise are not normally considered antisocial behaviour unless the noise is excessive, regular or outside of permitted hours (11pm to 7am).
Noise complaints can include:
- Loud music
- DIY at unsocial hours
- Frequent visitors at unsocial hours
- Dogs barking
- Door slamming
Noise pollution is best dealt with by the Environmental Health department of your local council. The local authorities can enforce measures to control noise pollution.
Before making a formal noise complaint to Sanctuary, we strongly suggest you attempt to have a reasonable discussion with your neighbour or even write them a note to try and resolve the issue.
They may not even be aware that they are causing a problem.
If speaking to your neighbour is unsuccessful or you do not feel it appropriate to approach your neighbour, please use the form below to register a complaint.
