Submit an online noise complaint diary

Licensees must ensure the noise coming from their premises is reasonable and meets the noise limit condition of their liquor licence. This includes noise from:

  • entertainment
  • patrons
  • some types of mechanical noise related to the operation of the premises.

The Office of Liquor and Gaming Regulation (OLGR) doesn't investigate every complaint it receives about problem noise. We assess a number of factors to decide whether to investigate the matter or if another response is more appropriate. Receiving detailed information from you will help with our assessment.

When to use this form

Use this form to notify OLGR about noise from a licensed venue that's an ongoing problem.

We need as much detail as possible, so we can focus our inspections. The longer you record the information, the greater chance we have of identifying any patterns or trends.

If your complaint is about a one-off noise-related incident, complete the general online complaint form.
