Noise Complaints

Having problems with ongoing noise in your neighbourhood?

In the first instance, we recommend you:

  • Approach your neighbour to politely and respectfully explain how the noise is affecting you
  • Try to come to a ‘win-win’ resolution – for instance your neighbour may be able to continue the activity, perhaps for a shorter duration or at a time more convenient to you.

The Shire’s Environmental Health Officers may need to obtain sound level measurements from your property as part of the investigation.

If you have a complaint surrounding the use of drones in your area or on Shire land, you can report it to the Civil Aviation Safety Authority.
