    Noisy Neighbours

    From time to time noisy neighbours can be problem. The Environment Protection Act 1970 states that it is an offence to make ‘unreasonable noise’ from a residence. Noise can be unreasonable if a neighbour can hear it in a habitable room, such as a bedroom.

    The EPA has a helpful guide which can be found here.  This guide includes a table which summarises when certain types of noise can be unreasonable.

    If you are annoyed by a noisy neighbour, try to talk to them first. They may not be aware that there is a problem.

    You can report residential noise to the City of Port Phillip (CoPP). Investigating officers decide if noise is unreasonable. They consider volume, source and intensity, time and place, circumstances, and how long the noise continues. You can also report residential noise, like late night parties, to police.  How to do this is explained here.
