Whenever you consider a noise to be so loud, so continuous, so repeated, of such duration or pitch or occurring at such times that it gives you reasonable cause for annoyance - you can initiate action to deal with it.
Firstly, it may be possible to explain to whomever is causing the noise and come to some mutually acceptable understanding.
If this does not resolve the matter then there are a number of courses of action that individuals may take when dealing with a noise nuisance issue. The options will depend on the nature of the noise and the status of the complainant.
The public information leaflet A Guide to the Noise Regulations
outlines the steps open to you under the law when you are experiencing nuisance caused by noise. It is intended as a practical guide and is not a legal interpretation of the law.
For more information you can consult your local authority
or seek legal advice.
