Certain noises are classified as “exempt”. In other words, the Town has no authority to control such types of noises. However, there may be other relevant authorities for some types of exempt noise such as aircraft noise or trains.
Exempt noises include propulsion and braking systems of motor vehicles, noise emissions from trains, aircrafts and safety warning devices fitted to motor vehicles and earth moving machinery.
If you’d like to find out more about the different restrictions and requirements applying to noise, you’ll find it all in the Environmental Protection (Noise) Regulations 1997
