Where it is impractical to comply with the permitted noise level it may be necessary to obtain a noise exemption from the City. There are generally two scenarios where this is most common. The first involves an exemption for construction works undertaken after hours and for which the normal construction noise exemption would not apply. The second scenario involves community type events which would lose their character if required to comply with the normal noise limits. Before an exemption is granted in either scenario an application must be made to the City along with supporting information.
The following are the respective application forms as well as an example of a Noise Management Plan which may be required to be submitted along with the application.
