Environmental problems Tackle a noise problem

Noise from building sites

Work should normally only take place:

  • Monday to Friday: 7.30am to 6pm
  • Saturday: 8.30am to 2pm

No work should be done on Sundays or Bank holidays.

The workers can arrive 30 minutes before they start work. 

If you have a problem the first thing to do is speak to the company doing the work. If this doesn't work let us know and we'll investigate.

If you are a building contractor then you should let local residents know, give them contact details and submit an application for noisy working, before the work starts.
