Everyone must expect some noise from their neighbours from time to time. However, noise can cause disturbance especially if at unreasonable times or for prolonged periods.
Information and advice on noise from neighbours can be found on our information leaflet.
Further information and advice on anti social behaviour is also available.
Noise from burglar and car alarms
Ringing burglar and car alarms causing a statutory nuisance can be silenced by action from the Environmental Protection Team. This may involve serving a statutory notice and obtaining a warrant to gain entry to the vehicle or property to allow the alarm to be silenced. The costs can then be charged to the owner or occupier of the premises, or the registered owner of the car.
