Indoor noise

Parties

If at all possible try to hold your party in a room or venue where neighbours will not hear any noise or music.

If you are having a party at your home, think about where your property is situated. For example, if your property is a flat, be aware of your neighbours above and below as well as next to you.

It is a good idea to warn neighbours if you are planning a party. You could possibly even invite them! If they are not attending, give them a contact number or ask them to call round if the noise begins to bother them. Also, arrange a sensible finishing time and stick to it.

Do not invite more people than you can easily accommodate. Make sure that you know your guests and that you can trust them. You are responsible for them.

If you are planning to play music, think about where you position the speakers: keep them away from party walls and off the floor if you live in a flat. Keep doors and windows closed so the noise does not travel.

Periodically walk the boundary of your property to check that noise is not escaping which could cause a nuisance. Think, would this noise disturb me?
