Approval to Exceed Noise Standards - Western Australia

Description

You will require this approval if you intend to conduct an activity that exceeds the noise standard. Noise regulations set standards for maximum levels of noise that may be legally generated by certain activities. If you cannot comply with one of these standards, you may apply for approval to allow the emission of noise which exceeds or varies from the standard.

This approval does not apply to noise associated with sporting, cultural or community events, or noise generated as a result of ongoing construction, motor racing, or shooting venue activities. This approval may be used to authorise excess noise generated on other premises, such as factories, power plants, or mines.
