We monitor a range of environmental issues at the council, the most common nuisance complaints we receive is related to noise, smoke, odour and light.

Before making a complaint

If you have a complaint, it is best to discuss it initially with the person or organisation responsible. They may not realise they are causing a problem.

Try to be reasonable, otherwise your discussions are likely to end in further argument. Explain the details of your complaint and try to agree a reasonable solution or a compromise.

You should only contact the council after you have tried all reasonable efforts to resolve the issue with the person or organisation responsible.
