What to do if someone reports your noise
It can be upsetting if someone reports your noise. It is important to get as many details as you can regarding what your neighbour says you have done. You will then be able to think about if you could be making a noise. If so, we have some helpful tips to reduce your noise. Not all noise reports are valid, we will interview you when we investigate the report. This can involve the use of noise monitoring equipment to show if there is a noise problem. We can also offer mediation from an independent trained person to help you put thing right between you and your neighbour.
