When a carpet is removed and replaced with laminate, the noise your neighbour in the property below experiences can greatly increase.

When considering floor coverings we remind council tenants that we do not permit laminate flooring in flats.

Please close front, internal and cupboard doors carefully, particularly late at night and early in the morning.

Furniture pads can be a very cost effective way of reducing noise by sticking these to the inside of the cupboard door or around an internal door frame.
