Quick Start Guide

Quick Start Guide

1. Is it a one-off or short-lived?

A one-off party is probably something you can live with. A loud alarm may need reporting straight away.

2. If you are able, speak to your neighbour

If you highlight the noise as an issue there is a good chance this will help reduce it. Give them a fair chance to put things right.

3. Start keeping detailed evidence

Keep a log/diary and save copies of all your correspondence. We have a suitable diary that can be downloaded or printed.

4. Contact the local authority

Usually your local Council’s noise team or environmental health department. You may also contact other agencies such as their housing association.

5. Use the service provided wisely

In order to get the best out of your local authority you must provide them with evidence (completed diary sheets) and call them out to witness the noise.
