Ongoing problems with noise

Te haere tonu o ngā raru whakaturituri

For recurring noise problems, call 09 301 0101 during working hours and ask to speak to a compliance noise specialist.

We can issue infringement notices for repeat offenders. These notices require the offenders to pay a fine for:

  • not complying with an excessive noise direction notice
  • not complying with an abatement notice for noise.

We can issue an abatement notice if there are ongoing issues with noise. This is an official letter asking the offender to reduce noise to a reasonable level.

We use sound level meters to take noise readings that can be measured against the levels allowed in the Auckland Council District Plan, before issuing an abatement notice.

The notice sets out timeframes for specific actions the offender has to take to comply.
