Porton Court flats are not up to modern sound insulation standards. Footsteps on hard floors, loud TV or radio, banged doors, etc. can all cause nuisance so suitable precautions should be taken. The problem is particularly acute at night. For this reason carpeted floors are preferred in your lounge, hall and bedrooms. If you plan building works please give 7 days warning to your neighbours using the notice board so they can plan to be out! REMEMBER – some residents work shifts!
