To investigate your complaint the noise must be happening while we are on duty. The noise service currently operates six days per week, offering a late-night out-of-hours service on a Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday.  If there is no one on duty, or if the noise has stopped, we will not take action but your complaint will be logged.  You can’t make an anonymous report but all complaints are confidential.


  • Monday to Saturday, 8am to 4pm

Evenings and nights

  • Friday and Saturday, 8pm to 4am
  • Sunday and Monday, 8pm to 2am

The best way to report nuisance noise is by using our online form:

Once we have received your complaint you may get a call from us asking you to confirm the noise is still happening. If it is, we will contact you and arrange to visit you in your property to investigate the noise level and find out how it’s affecting you.
