Areas of Law / General Legal Advice

Our new neighbours put their dog into their back yard every night. It’s constant barking until midnight and beyond keeps us awake since we’re pensioners and retire early. Is there anything that can be done?

The easiest solution would be to try to persuade your neighbours not to put their dog out at night, or for you to switch to a different bedroom in your house if that’s possible. However the council’s Environmental Protection Department may agree to serve a noise abatement notice if all else fails. Report the problem on 01254 267699, it will probably monitor the barking, and could serve your neighbours with a notice asking for the nuisance to be stopped within 14 days, fines could follow. Enlist the support of any other neighbours who may be affected.
