Before we investigate noise nuisance, we have to determine if the noise is unreasonable and we will consider the following:
Everyday living noises
Lights being switched on or off, toilets being flushed, foot steps, doors closing and opening, banging pipes, use of household appliances, people talking etc.
Children playing - play is a crucial part of a child’s life and is fundamental for the enjoyment of childhood as well as their well being and development. We understand some behaviour displayed by children can be frustrating , especially if they are playing in the street or communal areas (unless they are causing damage) it is not anti-social behaviour.
