General Living Noise

We would not consider sounds relating to ‘general living’ as antisocial behaviour. ‘General living’ includes noise such as;

  • vacuuming
  • Walking around
  • doors opening and closing
  • general conversations
  • children playing

You may want to have a friendly word with your neighbour as they may not be aware you can hear them or use our Dear Neighbour Letter.

 

Loud Noise/Music

This would only be considered antisocial behaviour if the noise is persistent.

We want everyone to enjoy living in their home and would ask that residents are both considerate and tolerant.

We would first suggest you have a friendly word with your neighbour as they may not be aware they are causing a disturbance. You can also download our  “Dear Neighbour Letter” to help with this.

If the behaviour is persistent, please complete our anti-social behaviour log with dates and times of the incidents. Log sheets can be requested through the Contact Centre on 01 7072088 or by email at cluid@cluid.ie.

How to make a report

If you want to report persistent loud noise/music, contact Clúid by phone (01 707 2088) or by email at cluid@cluid.ie.

DIY  Noise

Clúid’s top tips to keep the noise down!

Here are some tips for reducing noise in the home to minimise disturbance to neighbours.
Alarms

Ensure you choose a reliable product and ensure it’s serviced regularly. Installers of alarm systems are required to have licenses from the Private Security Authority. In order to get a license, they must adhere to certain standards, including maximum times for the sounding of external alarms – the maximum under the European standard is 15 minutes.

DIY

Whenever possible, let your neighbours know that you are undertaking noisy work and try to work during normal waking hours.

Carry out the noisiest tasks in the middle of the day – if you must start early, do quieter jobs first.

Garden noise

Try and carry out noisy activities in the middle of the day for example mowing the lawn.

If you have a barbeque or party, tell your neighbours, invite them if appropriate, avoid amplified music out of doors and if anyone does complain, turn it down.  Either end your party or bring your guests indoors at a reasonable time.

Entering / leaving your home

Avoid slamming front doors or communal entrance doors, particularly late at night or early morning.

If expecting a visitor or a cab, ask them to knock rather than sound the horn and try not to slam your door or car doors.
