What are the restrictions on having a party?

There are no specific restrictions or times that relate to parties in private homes. However the police can take action if you or your guests cause a disturbance and the council can take action if the noise from the party causes a nuisance.
A nuisance can occur at any time but is more likely to cause disturbance to others at night..
See our information on statutory nuisance for more details of what the council can do.
