I am suffering from noise nuisance, what can I do about it?
Noise nuisances can have a significant impact on quality of life.
Your local council has environmental teams that can assist in tackling these issues, details of which can be found below, although many will suggest for you to make initial contact with the person causing the noise to resolve the issues informally prior to a formal visit from their environmental teams.
There are several practical things that you can do to help whoever is dealing with your case such as keeping a diary of when these issues occur, these can help to identify patterns of behaviour as well as document the disruption that it may be causing to your daily life. To keep a diary of incidents you need to note down the time and date as well as details of what is happening, such as loud music, as well as the effect it is having on you, such as disturbing your sleep. The environmental teams will advise you further on recording when incidents occur.
