In this section, you will find information relating to noise nuisances and how to deal with them.
We all have our different lifestyles and different tastes, but we have to learn to live together and respect those around us. With a little thought you can ensure that noise that you create does not disrupt the life of others. Here are a few tips on how to avoid annoying your neighbours:
Think about the positioning of your TV and stereo speakers. Do not put them on party walls and in flats raise them off the floor. If you want to listen to something loud, buy and use headphones
Do not use your vacuum cleaner, washing machine or DIY tools late at night or in the early hours of the morning
If you have an audible house alarm make sure you have notified the police key-holder database of the details of key holders, fit a 20-minute cut-out device and maintain your alarm regularly
