Domestic noise can include:-
- Amplified Music
- Playing of a Musical Instrument.
Some noise, however upsetting, cannot be classified as a Statutory Nuisance such as children playing and reasonable levels of household noise.
There are no legal "permitted" noise levels or times when noise would be a nuisance, and it will usually be up to a council officer to decide whether noise levels are reasonable or are causing a nuisance.
Depending on where you live you may need to be more conscious of the noise you make, eg. If you live in a flat, you will need to be quieter than if you lived in a detached house. You will also need to be aware that if you live in a flat you will hear some noise from your neighbours.
Remember though, no-one is entitled to silence, it’s all about what’s reasonable; whether you are making the noise of having to listen to it.
