Noise from building and construction work can be considered a nuisance.
In New Zealand we have Construction Noise Standards which limits noise levels and times of operation, depending on certain situations.
Where equipment such as pumps, compressors or other commercial activity disturbs residents, our District Plan stipulates maximum allowed noise levels, depending where and when the noise occurs.
Our Environmental Health Officers can advise you about what noise regulations apply in your area.
