We would not usually consider this to be antisocial behaviour.
- We would suggest you have a friendly word with your neighbour first as they may not be aware they are disturbing you. We’ve put together a some tips to help you resolve issues with neighbours.
- If you still feel you are being disturbed, we suggest you contact the local Environmental Health Officer. Should they take enforcement action, we will use this as evidence against the perpetrator if appropriate.
- If the situation does not improve, mediation might be of help to you. It’s an informal, confidential and independent service available to help neighbours sort out their differences and reach an agreement. They can help you and your neighbour(s) understand each other’s point of view and reach a solution. Please contact us and we will refer you.
*‘Persistent’ means the disturbance lasts for continuous periods of over 30 minutes a day for at least five days within one week.
**Night-time – after 11pm and before 7am
