Due to  demolition and construction works taking place in York Street and University of Ulster local residents have been reporting a significant increase in noise levels.

Here’s the link to the noise reporting section on Belfast City Council website: www.belfastcity.gov.uk/buildingcontrol-environment/noisecontrol/reportnoiseproblem.aspx

People can call (028 9037 3006) or email (envhealth@belfastcity.gov.uk). After 8pm at night, to get someone out while noise is actually happening so it can be monitored, people should call the (028) 9037 3006 number.

Noise is restricted between 7am and 7pm, with more stringent restrictions between 7pm and 10pm. There should be no audible noise between 10pm and 7am and all day on a Sunday. (“Quiet” construction may be possible. In some exceptional circumstances, some noise may be permitted if the work can only be carried out at night.)
