Noise Control

Noise, simply stated, is any unwanted sound. We respond to complaints about noise in the community when the noise interferes with your peace, comfort and convenience.

The noise control provisions under the Resource Management Act 1991 and District Plan are designed to:

  • Protect the public from excessive or unreasonable noise
  • Protect the rights of people and industry
  • Set out obligations for all of us to keep noise to a reasonable level
