Planning an event?


Quieten down and listen closely to this info


If you’re making a tonne of noise (or even a little) there could be noise issues.

If your event will create new or additional noise to an area, it pays to let neighbouring properties or businesses know before the event. This may help mitigate any unexpected complaints to the organiser or stop any complaints to Council.

If we receive a noise complaint during your event you could expect a visit from a noise control officer. You may be asked to drop the noise to a reasonable level. It is important that any requests from a warranted noise control officer are followed.

To find out about noise restrictions in our district and how they might impact your event, contact our events team on 0800 924 723 or email
