Noise is generally regarded as unwanted sound. It could be too loud, intrusive or just happening at the wrong time or without warning. Car alarms, barking dogs and noisy neighbours are all examples of noise that can cause disturbance, but they don't always constitute a nuisance - it's likely we all make unwanted noise sometimes without realising it. On these pages you'll find information on how to minimise the noise you make and how to report the noise of others, whether you're an individual or a business.
Information and advice on resolving neighbour disputes can be found on the GOV.UK website.
