Top tips to
prevent neighbour nuisance
Amplified music/ games
Consider volume - if you can hear it beyond the
boundary of your home and garden, it's probably too loud.
Regardless of what time it is, it can still cause a nuisance.
Speakers - if you're listening to music in the
garden, please position speakers towards your own home, pointing
away from neighbouring properties.
Is the work noisy? - Think about the hours
you are undertaking it and try not to do it late at night.
Giving the heads up! - if you're planning on
doing some home improvements, please let your neighbours know in
advance - post a note or message them.
Garden bonfires and burning rubbish
Appeal - St Helens Borough Council and
Merseyside Fire & Rescue Service are appealing to residents to
not light garden bonfires.
Remember - smoke can be harmful to
someone with a respiratory problem - it can also prevent others
from getting fresh air in the garden.
Danger - burning household rubbish or plastics,
foam or paint can produce toxic fumes.
BBQ?- let your neighbours know and never leave
it unattended. Keep smoke and noise under control.
Barking - dogs may bark because they are lonely
which can disturb neighbours - please don't leave them unattended
if they are likely to bark.
Take the lead - if you're walking your dog,
please keep them on their lead so you can control their distance
Pick it up - please take bags out with you and
clean-up after your dog - you can dispose of the waste bag in any
public bin or take it home with you. Don't ruin the outdoors for
