Bothered by noise


This booklet is only a guide to neighbour noise issues. It is up to each person to think about the risk to their personal safety and property before approaching any situation.

This leaflet was developed in conjunction with an advertising campaign run by the environmental charity Encams in summer 2006.

The advice here applies to England only.
