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.
Every year there is an increase in the number of complaints made to Kirklees. Repeated or prolonged ringing of an alarm can cause great distress and annoyance to neighbours, particularly if they are trying to sleep. Where an alarm causes annoyance, officers from the council may arrange to have the alarm silenced.
