Glasgow’s noisiest streets: The top 10 streets in Glasgow with the most noise complaints

From Pollokshaws Road to Great Western Road - here’s our list of the top 10 noisiest streets in Glasgow

Noisy neighbours, we’ve all had one - but some streets in Glasgow are much worse than others - with that in mind we asked Glasgow City Council for information on the streets in Glasgow with the most noise complaints.

GlasgowWorld submitted a Freedom of Information request for domestic noise complaints in Glasgow.

The council could not offer full details on non-domestic noise complaints not related to people’s homes, but informed us that in the last four years, over 100 people have complained about the noise levels of ice cream vans - 3 have lodged a noise complaint in 2023, 47 issued a complaint in 2022, 42 complaints in 2021, and 29 complaints in 2020 - for a total of 121 noise complaints about ice cream truck chimes.

In the last three years, 10,601 noise complaints have been made to Glasgow City Council - the most complained about noises in Glasgow were:

  • Amplified noise from a TV, Music, Radio, etc (3734 complaints)
  • Shouting, banging, loud voices, etc (2136 complaints)
  • Noise from animals (1314 complaints)

These are the streets across the city with the most noise complaints.
