Noise complaints form over half of all statutory nuisance cases and have been on the rise since the COVID-19 pandemic. While residents have a legal right to be protected against statutory noise nuisance, not all noise complaints fall into this category and some may be part of other anti-social behavioural issues.

Building on the topics discussed in module one, the second part of this series provides insights into the legal issues around everyday noise and poor sound insulation. This module also takes a closer look at mental health impacts and the meaning of ‘prejudicial to health and nuisance’ in the context of noise cases.

Module two objectives

  • Explore the legal issues surrounding everyday noise and poor sound insulation

  • Establish when a noise complaint should be considered in the category of statutory nuisance or other anti-social behavioural issues

  • Understand the meaning of ‘prejudicial to health and nuisance’ in the context of noise cases

  • Explore how mental health issues affect complainants and those being complained about

CPD: 2 hours and 30 minutes
