If you remove a carpet and replace it with a hard wood, laminate or ceramic floor neighbours will hear more noise.
From 1 September 2008 residents have had to get our written permission to lay this type of flooring.
Please download our information leaflet on wooden floors
Any lessee who bought after January 2006 and who wishes to install a laminate or wooden floor should check whether their lease specifically requires them to install a high quality acoustic underlay to the Council’s satisfaction.
Remember- creating an unreasonable amount of noise could mean enforcement action being taken under the terms of the tenancy or lease.
