Reporting noise nuisance

What we cannot deal with

There are some noises that we do not have statutory powers or duties to deal with or we cannot investigate further. These are as follows:

  • aircraft noise
  • traffic noise 
  • railway noise
  • noise from emergency vehicles
  • noise from people in the street
  • emergency works by utility companies or roadworks
  • children playing in the street
  • where the noise source is unknown.
