Many noise disputes, particularly those involving neighbours, can be resolved informally. Often simply explaining politely that you’re being troubled by their noise may do the trick.
Sometimes, however, neighbours aren't quite so reasonable. They either can’t see why using power tools at 5am, for example, is a problem or are reluctant to change the way they live.

Our specialist advisors can help you to take the necessary steps to restore noise to reasonable levels, which may include asking your local authorities or the Environmental Health Officer (EHO) to investigate the noise.
