Music venues can avoid police shutdowns thanks to a new way of dealing with noise complaints

Timeout Magazine | December 20, 2021

“It’s a tale as old as time: rich person buys property next door to a pub in Sydney, is outraged to hear loud music, and calls upon law enforcement to have it shut down.  Right now, post-lockdown re-openings are expected to bring a deluge of noise complaints from residents unused to the sounds of people enjoying their city, and the rise of alfresco venues will only exacerbate the issue. In response, a new community campaign is here to provide the resources for venues and residents across Sydney to work together and manage the potential of increased complaints.”

NTIA Chair, Justine Baker commented:

Our local venues have been hard hit in the past two years and this campaign appeals to communities to be a part of the solution…Many residents are not aware of the channels available to them when it comes to noise complaints and tend to call the police, where in fact local councils are far better placed to deal with the issue if need be.

We all need to work together to support our city.
