In most cases, noise issues are resolved by talking to the people involved. Where this has not resolved the issue, Environmental Health Officers at the Shire or the WA Police may be contacted for help.

For those complaints relating to parties or where anti-social behaviour is a concern, please contact the Margaret River Police on 9757 2222 or the Augusta Police on 9758 3900.

The Environmental Protection (Noise) Regulations 1997 stipulate the allowed decibel levels depending on the day and time. The regulations have been designed to ensure acceptable levels are met while being flexible to allow normal activities to occur such as lawn mowing, public events and music practice. This guideline contains general information about allowable noise levels and times. For information specifically related to stereo noise, this guideline may assist. 

To make a formal complaint about noise, please complete this form.

The completed form can be emailed to [email protected] or handed to customer service staff in Margaret River or Augusta.
