Sometimes we can be disturbed by excessive noise coming from industrial or commercial premises or building sites.  Examples are machinery noise, fan noises, vehicle movements, alarms and radios.  Where these occur continuously or loudly, or when they are new noises, they can be irritating.

If you are disturbed by such noise and you are able to identify the source, try visiting the premises and speaking to the site Manager.  In many cases, they are not aware that there is a problem and are only too pleased to try and resolve it.

There is further information in the following documents

If all else fails
