Noise control

People and activities are entitled to make noise at a reasonable level. But you have the right to have excessive noise reduced or stopped.

Noise complaints during COVID-19 lockdown

During the lockdown we’ll all mostly be at home. So there’ll be more ambient noise around the neighbourhood because there are more people about.

We won’t be sending noise control officers out to enforce noise complaints for health and safety reasons, unless there are exceptional circumstances. 

Complaints of noise from parties or gatherings will be passed to the Police as breaches of the lockdown.

Please respectful and tolerant of neighbours and keep the noise down during the lockdown.
