Issues with neighbours?


Broxtowe Borough Mediation Service LogoWe all have neighbours some more friendly than others, but problems can occur. If you are in any kind of dispute with your neighbours - whether it's over kids playing, noise, dogs etc. You may have thought "I'll ignore it", or "It'll go away" or you may just suffer in silence.

Many people also feel embarrassed that they haven't resolved the problem themselves, but it is easy for small misunderstandings to grow into big misunderstandings. However, you no longer need to deal with the problem on your own. Broxtowe Borough Mediation Service exists for this very reason.

You don't have to like your neighbours, but you do have to live near them.


What is Mediation?

Mediation is a way of solving problems between neighbours.  Trained mediators listen and talk to the people involved.  They do not take sides or judge anybody, but aim to help neighbours reach an agreement that works for everyone.

How does it work?

Mediation takes place in your own home to find out more about the problem and what you want to happen.  Only with your permission, we then contact your neighbours to arrange a similar visit to them.

Mediation is...

  • Free

  • Impartial

  • Independent

  • Confidential
