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.
