Collecting evidence

Illustration of notepadEvidence is vital in investigating cases of noise nuisance. If your noise complaint is on-going you should fill in a noise nuisance diary sheet.

You may wish to record the harassment/noise you are experiencing. You could do this by using your mobile phone, your camera or by using a dicta-phone.


If required we can help you gather evidence by providing you with:

» dicta-phones;
» professional witnesses who will come to your home at the time the noise occurs; or
» installing a noise nuisance recorder in your home.

You should take care and be careful never to snoop on your neighbours or invade their privacy. You should never put yourself in danger or risk.  You are recording the noise, not your neighbour’s day to day activities.
