County throws spotlight on noise problems

Denbighshire County Council is aiming to raise awareness of noise problems and solutions during the current Noise Action Week.

In the last year the council received over 500 complaints about noise – everything from loud music, barking dogs, shouting, banging and DIY to early morning deliveries, construction work and wind turbines.

It’s estimated that investigating noise complaints cost councils £130 - £7k per complaint. 

Housing providers, mediation services and the police are also frequently involved in resolving noise disputes, representing a huge amount of time and money. 

Denbighshire says it is asking all residents to show some consideration to their neighbours when considering any noisy activities.
