Noise and light problems

Noise and light problems

We receive hundreds of complaints every year about noise and light nuisance.

The most common complaints are about disturbance from neighbours, such as loud music and televisions, barking dogs, vehicle repairs and DIY noise.

Other complaints we investigate include amplified music from licensed premises, burglar alarms, car alarms, construction site noise, industrial noise and noise in the street, such as from ice cream vans and car alarms.

We also investigate cases of light nuisance where badly positioned security lights are causing problems.

The following webpages provide information on noise and light nuisance and how we investigate your complaint.
