> What is the Lennox Head Cultural Centre's Noise Management Plan?

  1. Events with Amplified Music/Band with Bass and Drums
    1. Closest residents to be notified of an upcoming music event.
    2. Amplified music to cease before midnight on Friday and Saturday nights, otherwise before 11.00pm.
    3. Not more than one amplified music event in a week and not more than 26 events per year.
    4. Noise levels in bass frequencies to be constrained to not more than 106 dB (linear) in each of the three octave bands 63Hz and 250 Hz.  A noise monitor will be installed and set to indicate when these levels are being exceeded.  Although these levels are likely to be in the order of 15dB above the quietest background levels in these octave bands at the closest receivers, they are to be considered lawful.
    5. Should the noise monitor indicate excessive levels of noise, function organisers will be required to reduce the volume levels to ensure compliance.
    6. The microphone used for noise monitoring is to be located on the eastern side of the hall in a tamperproof location.  The monitor visual display unit is to be located in a highly visible location.
  1. Review Process
    1. All noise complaints are to be reviewed by Community Facilities staff and reported to the Manager, Customer Service and Communications for resolution.
    2. The complaint and type of event will be reviewed and if required, the number of allowable events and permissible base levels will be reviewed.
