Music and Venue Noise

With high density inner city living becoming more prevalent around Melbourne a focus has become apparent to protect both music venues and nearby residents from music noise. This is a hot topic for developers and live music activists alike with the introduction of “Agent of Change”.

Council will likely require the developer or proposed music venue to ensure the Victorian Planning Provisions and the requirements of the EPA legislation are met as part of planning permit applications or existing venues receiving complaints.

A&AS are able to help with setting the noise limits and recommending any upgrades with a professional and conscientious acoustic report to submit to Council.
