Western Springs noise monitoring results

We monitor noise generated by speedway meetings and concerts regularly, when events take place.

What we monitor

We use noise monitoring equipment to:

  • address concerns about speedway noise
  • measure noise levels every five minutes and note any breaches to the maximum noise level of 89db
  • ensure the overall event complies with an average overall level of 83dB
  • ensure that activities comply with the district plan.

We also monitor wind speed, which is essential.

Weather conditions have a significant impact on noise levels. When wind speed exceeds 5m/sec, we cannot take readings as results will be inaccurate.
