Noise from Flats

from the BEO:

Noise from Flats

We urge residents to be respectful of their surroundings and their neighbours and keep noise to a minimum, especially in these exceptional times when people are working from home.

The Barbican style of communal living means that you are surrounded by other flats - so please be extra considerate - as noise travels.
  • Try not to slam your doors or windows. If your doors are closing noisily, please contact Repairs 020 7029 3909, to arrange an ease and adjust.
  • Try not to make noise that can be heard outside your property. Remember - if you can hear your neighbours, your neighbours may be able to hear you.
  • Keep televisions and radios down to a minimum, "The tenant will not at any time operate or play or suffer to be operated or played on the premises, so as to be heard outside the premises any musical instrument or any electrical mechanical or other apparatus which produces or reproduces sound.
  • Any person using the common parts shall do so as quietly as possible and cause no disturbance or annoyance to other residents.
  • Please refrain from using the Garchey,washing machines or tumble dryers between 23.00 and 7.00.
If a noise problem is caused by your neighbour, a courteous approach to them to explain the problem may provide a satisfactory solution. If this does not help, please contact the BEO.

If the problem is from another source (eg road works) contact the BEO. Outside normal office hours (Monday to Friday, 9.15am to 5pm) contact your Concierge, who may be able to investigate and if possible witness and/or resolve such problems.

Alternatively, if residents are being disturbed by noise happening now or if you would like help or advice:

Call 020 7606 3030 for noise happening now, or for advice, email the Public Protection Team (please note response to emails is not immediate).
