It is a fact of life that we all make noise: whether we are talking to others, playing music, entertaining, driving in our cars or just going about our daily business. What is a noise to one person may be pleasurable to another. But too much noise can reduce people's quality of life and, in some extreme cases, even destroy it entirely.
Types of noise can include;
- Noise in the street such as vehicles, loudspeakers, burglar alarms and road works
- Neighbourhood noise coming from passers by such as night time revelers or people playing in the street
- Night time noise coming from dwellings and gardens
- Dog barking
In the main, noise is dealt with by the Environmental Protection Team.
Where a noise nuisance is created by loud voices or foul language, we will work with other agencies to address the issues depending on who, what, where and when it is happening.
