An owner or occupier of land must not cause or allow to be caused any excessive/objectionable noises or sounds to emanate from their land at any time from:
- A domestic animal
- A domestic bird
A noise or sound is excessive or objectionable where it may be considered unreasonable and adversely affects the comfort, convenience or privacy of any other persons residing in the locality. A person commits an offence under this clause whether the noises or sounds are caused or allowed to be caused by a conscious or unconscious act, omission or default or by any other means or method whatsoever.
Should you have an enquiry or concern regarding a nuisance animal, please lodge a Customer Action Request. An investigation will then take place by one of our Authorised Officers.
