Noise pollution

Excessive and unwanted noise is a consequence of modern life and it can cause annoyance and even ill health. If the noise is deemed to be a statutory nuisance, action can be taken and legally enforced to abate the problem.

If you are experiencing a noise problem you can complete our online form to provide the broad details of the problem, for example,

  • the address that the noise is coming from
  • your own name, address and contact details

These notifications can be found by following the link below:
