Noise Complaint Investigation

There can be many sources of noise, including activities which have been properly consented by the relevant authority; noise from neighbours; or noise from activities that haven’t been specifically permitted by any regulatory body.

Noise Complaint Investigation

People's response to noise varies and significant annoyance can be caused. The first 'port of call' in such circumstances is normally the Council's Environmental Health Department, or equivalent, who will usually visit the complainant's premises to decide if a 'Statutory Nuisance' exists. In some cases, however, it may be necessary for the complainant, or the Environmental Health Department, to commission a sound and vibration consultant to carry out measurements and an evaluation of the noise.

We carry out measurements internally and externally, and with audio recording as necessary, to assist with the determination of whether the noise or activity which is being complained about constitutes a Statutory Nuisance. In cases where the Council considers that such a nuisance does not exist, it does not prevent a complainant taking legal action against the producer of the noise independently of the Council.
