Top tips to
prevent neighbour nuisance
Consider volume - if you can hear it beyond the
boundary of your home and garden, it's probably too loud.
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.
bonfires and burning rubbish
Appeal - St Helens Council has joined forces
with Merseyside Fire & Rescue Service and other local
authorities in issuing an urgent appeal to residents to not light
Remember - smoke can be harmful to
someone with a respiratory problem such as Asthma and even
Coronavirus (COVID-19) - 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
