Construction noise

Construction and demolition work can only be carried out within specified hours or with permission from the council. Construction noise is considered to be a nuisance outside of these hours:

  • Monday to Friday 8am to 6pm
  • Saturdays 9am to 2pm
  • Sundays and Bank Holidays no works 

Construction noise includes all work undertaken by electricity, gas and water companies as well as our own council departments.

If you are being disturbed by construction work outside of standard construction hours, report it to us as soon as possible.

If you wish to carry out noisy work outside of normal working hours, visit our construction page to apply for Section 61 consent to carry out noisy demolition and/or construction works.
