Construction Noise

Construction noise during daytime

Construction work is permitted during the hours of 7am and 7pm, Monday to Saturday only (excluding public holidays). Any construction outside of these hours the company will need to seek approval from the Shire. Examples of construction noise include power tools, excavation, installation, demolitions.

Actions you can take

  • Speak to the Builders on the construction site to make them aware of your concerns.
  • Contact the building company who is managing the construction site and ask the building company to contact you once they have spoken to the workers on site.
  • If the annoyance caused by the construction noise continues, then you may contact the Shire of Serpentine Jarrahdale Health Environmental Officers to try assist further.

After hours construction noise

For construction work which needs to be undertaken outside of the above mentioned hours, the company will be required to submit an After hours Construction work Application Form. Our Environmental Health Officers will assess this application and the supporting noise management plan prior to issuing the company with approval for the works.
