Noise we do investigate

4. Fireworks

It is illegal to set off fireworks between 11pm and 7am, except for:

  • Bonfire Night (5 November), when the cut off is midnight
  • New Year’s Eve, Diwali and Chinese New Year, when the cut off is 1am

If someone is letting off fireworks outside of the permitted times, you should report it to Essex Police on 101.

We will investigate noise complaints about fireworks if someone is persistently letting them off.

You can find more information about fireworks and the law on GOV.UK.
