Environmental problems Tackle a noise problem

Noise from building sites

Noisy work should normally only take place between:

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

No noisy work should be done on Sundays or Bank holidays.

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 apply for prior consent (section 61), before the work starts.
