General Council Noise Rules
The hours when noisy construction work is allowed depends on the location and days of the week.
For residential areas the following applies:
Monday to Friday
- 6.30am to 7.30am: low level noise activities permitted (arrival, preparation for work).
- 7.30am to 6pm: construction work permitted
- 6pm to 8pm: work can continue, but no noisy work (e.g. hammering, power tools, excavation).
7.30am to 6pm: construction work permitted (no activities permitted before 7.30am)
Sunday and public holidays
No noisy construction work allowed.
Tip: A good rule of thumb is that if there’s going to be noise, vibrations, fumes or dust that will affect your neighbour’s living space, notify them.
