Excessive and unwanted noise is a consequence of modern life and it can cause annoyance and even ill health. If the noise is deemed to be a nuisance, action can be taken and legally enforced to suppress the noise. Advice can also be sought in connection with the noise impact of new developments.
Further advice is contained in the Defra leaflet Bothered by Noise.
The Considerate Contractor Advice Note contains information about good practice in construction and demolition works.
