Commercial and industrial premises noise

Noise from industrial and commercial premises can disturb people, especially when close to residential areas or occur at night when the background noise levels may be quieter.

Examples include:

  • Night time deliveries to business premises
  • Air conditioning and refrigeration plant noise
  • Noisy factories
  • Licensed premises
  • Construction site noise

Burnley Borough Council may investigate nuisance complaints relating to noise from commercial and industrial premises. Details of how we investigate such complaints may be found here.
