Depending on its level, character, location or the time of day we hear it, the impact of sound can range from being inconspicuous, to being annoying or it may even be harmful to our health or wellbeing. It’s when sound becomes unwanted, that it’s considered to be ‘noise’.
The management of noise is the responsibility of various state and local government bodies, each having their own laws, policies, regulations or guidelines for assessing and controlling noise. For example, Local Government regulations that prohibit noise from equipment used at residences at particular times of the day or State Government legislation that sets the standard for wind turbine noise.
Our expertise and experience ensures that we successfully navigate through the often complex landscape of varying environmental noise requirements in jurisdictions all around Australia.
We provide advice regarding power stations, wind farms, mines, residential developments, entertainment venues, commercial and industrial developments, and road/rail/aircraft noise.
