Noise and Public Health
Excessive and ongoing noise can be very disruptive. From loud music, noisy air conditioners, early morning power tools, pool pumps or other sources, Council can investigate reports of ongoing noise issues in line with Victorian legislation.
For one-off noise complaints like late night parties, please call the Police on 13 14 44.
Barking dog noise complaints
Dogs are an important part of our community, but dogs that bark excessively can become a source of irritation for neighbours and others. Talking to your neighbour about their barking dog is often the best way to resolve the problem as they may not be aware it is barking. For more information about what to do about excessive barking, please refer to the Barking dogs
Council website page or select the button below to submit a barking dog request.
