Noise pollution

Noise pollution is defined as unwanted sound and can cause cause disruption, annoyance and stress.

If you or your family are affected by noise you can make a complaint to us. It is useful to keep a log with dates, times, and the type of noise that is causing a nuisance to you.

To log a complaint please complete the noise pollution complaint form. We log your complaint  and an officer will contact you within five working days to discuss your problem. The type of investigation we carry out will depend on the case.

Construction noise pollution

The Health and Safety Executive is responsible for health and safety on construction sites. However, we deal with cases of noise or air pollution from construction sites.

If you wish to apply for prior consent for construction work to cover noise emissions please complete this form and return to us by email or post.
