Noise on the Street

Traffic Noise

Noises that we can deal with:
  • Complaints of noise from car stereos. You need to give us details of:
    • the car’s make
    • the car’s model
    • the car’s colour
    • the car’s registration number
    • and when and where you saw the vehicle being used.
  • Loudspeakers in the street operating between 10pm and 8am if they are causing an annoyance.
  • Noise from vehicle compressors and refrigeration units attached to vehicles. You will need to give us details of:
    • the car’s make
    • the car’s model
    • the car’s colour
    • the car’s registration number
    • when and where you saw the vehicle being used.
    • This may be where a refrigerated lorry is parked often overnight near a residential property with the compressor running. We do not have any powers to deal with noise from these vehicles driving along the road.
  • Noise from equipment / machinery such as compressors and drilling equipment.
Noises that we cannot deal with:
  • Engine and exhaust noise from vehicles as we have no powers to do so. This would include people revving their engines on the highway or fitting noisier exhausts.
  • Rowdy behaviour on the street.

You should contact the local Police station as they have powers to deal with these matters.
