Key info

  • The general approach to residential noise management in Tasmania is that a person's use of noise-making equipment, as well as their recreational activities, must not unreasonably interfere with their neighbour's wellbeing.
  • There are permissible hours of use for machinery commonly used in garden and home maintenance, on residential construction sites and for recreational activities.
  • You can call the pollution incidents and complaints hotline number on 1800 004 171. The number is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
  • Alternatively, if the incident is not occurring now and for non-urgent complaints, you can email incidentresponse@epa.tas.gov.au.
