Neighbour Noise

When monitoring noise from neighbours it can be difficult to prove that it came from the neighbour and not some other source, such as vehicles passing or even the complainant trying to falsify evidence.

If trying to resolve the problem amicably fails, the best approach is to get accurate measurements of the noise levels, along with an audio record to prove the nature of the noise: shouting, music, dogs, etc.

There is lots of information on neighbour noise on the Directgov web site.
