Dealing with noise
The noise brochures have been updated to reflect changes to the law introduced in the POEO (Noise Control) Regulation 2008.
Neighbourhood noise, such as noise from animals, alarms, machines and parties can be very annoying. However, it's often possible to stop noise that disturbs you without involving your council, the police or the Environment Protection Authority. The brochure, Dealing with Neighbourhood Noise, outlines steps to take to prevent noise being an issue for you.
The brochure, Dealing with Barking Dogs, is about ways to look after your dog to prevent excessive barking. It explains the law applying to noise from dogs and provides information that is intended to make life better for dogs, dog owners and their neighbours.
The brochure, Managing Noise from Intruder Alarms, is about ways in which you can avoid having a faulty intruder alarm, and what to do if a neighbour's alarm is an undue disturbance.
Noise from vehicles
The brochure, Managing Noise from Vehicles, is about noise from motor vehicles, ways to avoid having a noisy vehicle and what the law says when noise becomes offensive.
Noise abatement orders
The brochure, Seeking Noise Abatement Orders, explains how you can seek a noise abatement order if you decide to take action independently of the local council or other regulator to stop offensive noise from neighbours.
