Enjoy a Considerate Christmas
There are lots of ways to enjoy the Christmas Season, whatever you’ve got planned – please be considerate to your neighbours!
If you are planning to set off Fireworks over the Christmas and New Year season be sure to let your neighbours know!
Letting others know what you’re planning gives them time to plan how they will keep their animals from feeling afraid or fleeing
Be Sure to Notify your Neighbour so everyone nearby can enjoy your fireworks as well as keep their pets secure
Don’t forget to get rid of the used fireworks correctly, leave them in a bucket of water overnight and then place them in you general waste bin
Keep the volume down especially during the later evening, night or early morning. Better still use headphones if you want to play your music loud or late at night. Place speakers away from party walls and stand them on insulating materials. If you are having a party, consider inviting the neighbours, keep windows and doors closed and if someone complains turn the music down.
Noise from neighbours can cause disturbance and be particularly annoying if this affects our quality of life, for example, lack of sleep. If at all possible it is better to initially discuss the problem with your neighbour, as often, an investigation by LHP may lead to a serious breakdown in neighbour relations.
If you feel you can approach your neighbour regarding a potential noise problem be calm and polite. In most cases, people are unaware of the problem they are causing. Threatening behaviour will not help to resolve the problem and can often make things worse.
Explain to your neighbour that the noise is disturbing you and your family. If loud amplified music is the problem, invite them to come into your home so they can listen to it from your position.
However if is not possible to discuss with your neighbour or if the noise problem continues you can contact 03456041472
