We don’t usually consider this to be antisocial behaviour.

What to do if you’re being disturbed

We want everyone to enjoy their home. We ask that residents are considerate and tolerant of their neighbours. Everyone has the right to do work to their home. But we understand it can be annoying if it’s frequent.

If you’re continuously being disturbed by DIY noise, you could try the following:

  • Have a friendly word with your neighbour, using these tips. They may not be aware you can hear them or that they’re disturbing you.
  • Contact your local Environmental Health Officer if speaking to your neighbour does not resolve the issue.
  • Consider using mediation. This is a confidential service we offer to help neighbours resolve issues. Learn more here.
