Noise complaints

Construction noise

Construction noise covers the construction, alteration, repair and maintenance of buildings, structures, or roads and demolition work. Inevitably, these operations are noisy.

Certain large scale developments may have been granted planning permission with conditions attached that restrict the working hours of the developer or limit noise emissions to a particular level.

We can serve a notice imposing requirements about how the construction works should be carried out in order to minimise noise nuisance or which may limit hours of the work. We can offer advice and if necessary, arrange to investigate your complaint.

If the noise is happening at the time you want to report it please phone 0303 123 1015 - Monday - Thursday: 8.45am - 4.45pm and Friday: 8.45am - 4.15pm.

If you are reporting noise after these hours and up to 3am, phone the 24 hour call centre on 0800 24 20 24.

If you are reporting noise which has stopped please use our online form below.
