The Environmental Health Team applies policies to achieve a consistent and fair approach based on our experiences of events taking place in the community.  These will help ensure that public nuisance does not occur and that neighbours are not disturbed throughout the night by music which is to be played outside or in a marquee.  The policies are as follows:

  • Live music must finish by 23.00
  • Recorded amplified music must be turned down between 23.00 and midnight
  • After midnight, background music is permitted but must not be audible beyond the site boundary

For all events the applicant should monitor the area throughout the event to ensure that loud music is not clearly audible off site and is not disturbing local residents.
