Noise is unwanted sound and may affect us at home, causing problems for us and our families. We are not entitled to silence and a certain amount of noise has to be tolerated. Some noise is not controllable, such as from road, rail or air traffic and some noise is unavoidable on construction sites.
We can assist with many noise issues, often just giving advice or providing details of local mediation services but there are times when enforcement action becomes necessary.
Noise can be most disturbing at night, so we provide a limited out of hours service. In the majority of cases you will need a reference number before a visit can be made.

If calling out of hours please ring 01304 821199. Please note the service is only available between 8pm and 3am on Friday and Saturday and at the same time on Sundays when the next day is a public holiday. In the majority of cases you will need a reference number before a visit can be made.
