Who can use this service

When you make a request to our responsive service, the Principal Officer on duty will conduct a review of your complaint and respond to you via telephone within half an hour. The review will involve conducting background checks on our systems which will assist in making a decision as to what level of response is required. The Council operates a responsive service during the following hours:

Weekday daytime service:

  • Monday to Friday 9am to 5pm

Overnight responsive service:

The overnight service runs during the evenings on Thursday, Friday and Saturday until the early hours of the following morning.

Construction noise and DIY works can take place: Monday to Friday, 8am to 6pm. Saturday 8am to 1pm

What you need to know...

If officers attend your home, they will usually have to conduct an assessment from within a habitable room. Habitable rooms include living areas and bedrooms. If officers are unable to conduct an assessment as described above, it is unlikely that any action can be taken.

We treat all complaints in confidence, but there may be occasions when we will be required to release information to third parties. If we ever need to do this, we will let you know and give you the opportunity to decline.

We will never disclose your personal information to perpetrators or a third party without your consent, however it is certainly possible that the person causing the alleged nuisance might guess where the report has come from.
