Loud music

Loud music speakers

Loud music is a major source of complaints. If you are planning a party, please inform all of your neighbours, giving them an approximate finishing time. As a general rule, 11pm is considered a reasonable time for music levels to be reduced.

Plan your party so that it is as far away from your neighbours as possible. Position your speakers away from adjoining walls. Some properties aren't suitable for large parties, so you may need to restrict the number of people and reduce the volume of music.

If you are suffering from noise disturbance from a licensed premises, such as a pub, you should inform them that the music is audible from your property. If you can still hear the music after you have spoken to them, you can report the problem online.
