Dealing with Noise Problems
How can I deal with noise problems?
Don’t suffer in silence. If there is a problem in your neighbourhood then you can do something about it.
1. Talk about it
Although it may sound obvious, simply talking to your neighbours may help the problem. Most people are unaware that they are causing a nuisance and if you don’t tell them, who will?
2. Talk to the council
If you feel you can’t approach your neighbours or if there is still a problem you may ask for advice by completing the e-form on our Noise Control Page. Alternatively call 020 8489 1335 (weekdays) or 020 8489 0000 (evenings and weekends). Our responsive service is not 24 hours, but when you telephone you will be advised if an officer is currently on duty.
3. Taking your own action
If you want to take your own action through the courts you can. If the noise is persistent it might be a good idea to keep a log of the disturbances. You may wish to use a Noise Diary Log Sheet which is available from the Response Team and on the taking your own action page.
