Neighbourhood Noise Diary

For action to be taken under the Protection of the Environment Operations Act, the noise needs to be:

• harmful, or

• outside of the times or levels prescribed, or

• interfere unreasonably with the comfort or repose of another person.

The information you provide in this form will help with mediation through the Community Justice Centre or in determining the appropriate action. The Noise Diary should be completed for a minimum of seven days.

You should ensure that as much detail as possible is included in the Diary. Your accuracy in recording the noise is extremely important as it may be presented as evidence in Court.
