Noise pollution

DIY noise

A distinction needs to be made between noise from construction sites and noise from DIY activities in the home. The working hours imposed on building sites would not normally be applicable to home DIY jobs. This is because people can often only undertake DIY work in the evenings and at weekends. However, this does not give people permission to annoy neighbours at all hours of the day and night. We all have to be reasonable to live together.

Disturbance from DIY can be minimised by keeping noisy activities to reasonable hours and by thinking about what type of activity you are doing. Sensible precautions can be taken to minimise complaints from neighbours
