NSW Draft Construction Noise Guideline available for public consultation until Friday 30 April 2021

Following a review of the Interim Construction Noise Guideline (2009), the EPA has prepared a Draft Construction Noise Guideline to modernise and improve the guidelines.

The draft guideline holds people who manage construction projects to account for their environmental performance, by ensuring that construction noise is assessed, planned and managed in a risk-based manner within a framework to drive construction practices that minimise noise impacts on the community. This includes credible community engagement and transparent justification of proposed impact mitigation measures. For further information see:
