Noise is unwanted sound from aircraft noise, air conditioners, amplified and people noise, building work, liquor licensed premises, powerboats, regulated devices like power tools and mowers, swimming pool and spa pumps, and vehicle noise. Noise pollution can disrupt and interfere with daily activities, including sleep.
Talk to your neighbour and let them know your concerns if you have noise issues. In most cases, the problem can be fixed without anyone else being involved.
