Commercial noise nuisance

If you are bothered by commercial noise problems, for example from a pub, club or factory, phone us on 0113 222 4406 during office hours, (8am to 6pm Monday to Friday) or 0113 3950143 (at all other times).

If you want to report a residential noise problem or anti-social behaviour please visit www.leeds.gov.uk/antisocialbehaviour​​

The service is available to everyone but for legal reasons we cannot accept anonymous complaints. The details of your complainant will be kept confidential during the investigation, although if the evidence obtained shows the existence of a statutory nuisance a statement from yourself will be required to support any action taken by this Department. This may require you to give evidence in court. In cases where noise nuisance has been proved an abatement notice will be served. If this notice is breached the perpetrator can be taken to court and prosecuted and a fine imposed. The fine can be up to £20,000.

If you email us or report noise online we aim to respond within 5 working days. To report urgent issues you should call us.​​​

Noise that happens during the day:

Contact Leeds anti-social behaviour team to report noise nuisance from domestic properties. ​Use the form under Top Tasks - Report Domestic Noise Nuisance, or call us on 0113 222 4402, 9am to 5pm, Monday to Friday. 

If you rent your home privately, you need to report the problems to your landlord. If you rent from the council, you can report this to Housing Leeds on 0800 188 4000 or 0113 376 0410.

Noise that happens at night or at weekends/bank holidays:

If the problem is noise outside of office hours, please ring 0113 395 0143. This is available from 6pm to 3:30am.

The council operates a night-time response service in partnership with West Yorkshire Police.

Noise at night-time should only be reported when the noise is occurring. If the noise stops before the team attends, please ring back to cancel the request.

The team aim to call customers back to check the noise is still ongoing and gather more information before attending​. The service availability is subject to demand and although they may not be able to stop the noise for you, they may provide further evidence to back up your allegations.​​​​​​​
