Reporting a noise nuisance
We suggest you speak to the person causing the noise first. Often people don’t realise they are disturbing their neighbours and the issue can often be resolved quickly.
If this does not work, you may consider approaching the appropriate authority to help:
Environment Protection Agency - 1300 372 842
Noise from homes, music noise from licensed premises, noise from industrial premises.
Victoria Police - 000

A complaints hotline will be established for the duration of major event at the Flemington Racecourse and Melbourne Showgrounds. Noise Consulting & Management Pty Ltd will investigate any complaints, record the results of the investigation and the action taken and report back to the resident if desired.
We're committed to remedying unsatisfactory performance and welcome feedback as an opportunity to improve our systems, processes and services.
Our officers will receive complaints in a professional and courteous manner and will seek all relevant material to substantiate the complaint.
You will be informed of the processes and timelines within which a complaint will be processed and responded to. If a complaint cannot be satisfactorily resolved within five working days, you will be advised in writing that the matter is still under investigation and will be resolved within 14 or 28 days depending on the complexity of the issue.
However, should we receive a complaint that is abusive and vexatious, we will always reserve the right to inform the complainant that such a complaint cannot be dealt with until it is submitted in an appropriate and non-intimidatory form.
If you are not satisfied with the way complaints are resolved after internal processes have been exhausted you may elect to pursue matters with the Victorian State Ombudsman.
We want to know if you are satisfied with the services we provide.
Feedback can be made by calling 9243 8888, emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or writing to:
