Some noise is unavoidable. We need to accept that we may hear noise from our neighbour from time to time.
We would not consider this to be anti-social behaviour.
What can you do?
Talk to your neighbour. We encourage starting a polite chat with your neighbour. They may not be aware that they are disturbing you. We would expect you to attempt to resolve any issues yourself before involving us. Guidance on how to approach your neighbour.

Other ways we can help.
If you have personal reasons that mean you can’t speak to your neighbour, we can offer support. Relationships are an important part of living in a community. They give everyone a chance to live well. As a resident we can help with confidential, one to one support. Our Empowering Futures team can support you to address the issues that may need.
Our helpful tips and tools might be all you need.
