- Kirklees Council's Night Time Noise Team is currently closed for the winter months. The Noise Team will be back in operation in April 2019. If you have any concerns about noise, please read the information below.
There are several different ways of dealing with the problem of noise. These are the options:
Playing loud music
There is no set volume that you can play music. It depends whether anyone is likely to be disturbed by the noise.
There are no set times when you can play loud music. It depends whether you are causing annoyance. In general, daytime noise is more likely to be tolerated than night time noise.
We can't take action against occasional cars passing through. However, if there is a persistent offender, report it and we will investigate.
Repeated or prolonged ringing of alarms can cause nuisance and distress to neighbours. We can take steps to disconnect alarms and charge or even prosecute owners for this.
Alarms should be fitted with an automatic cut out to silence them after 20 minutes.
