Incident logs

Log sheets are important to gather evidence as this helps identify patterns and trends of noise nuisance.

They should be completed whenever an incident occurs. It must have the date, time and description of the noise being experienced. When completed they should be returned to your housing officer.

Dealing with the problem yourself

Sometimes the most effective option is to discuss the problem with your neighbour.

Often people aren’t aware they are causing a problem. If that doesn’t work the Mediation Service may help you resolve a dispute. Contact your housing officer for more information.

If this informal approach is not successful you should report the incident to us. Also contact the council’s EHEP section.
