Environmental noise

Unwanted noise can affect yours and your community’s health, wellbeing and enjoyment of the environment.


Our health protection officers liaise with local authorities and make submissions on plans and resource consent applications to ensure that the health effects of environmental and non-occupational noise are considered by territorial authorities in the course of their duties.

Health protection officers liaise with territorial authorities on the establishment of goals, objectives, plans and priorities for environmental noise control and monitor territorial authorities’ actions on environmental and non-occupational noise issues to ensure that health impacts of such noise are minimised.
