Musical instruments

Under current noise regulations, playing of musical instruments is permitted in residential premises. This may be undertaken between the hours of:

  • 7am-7pm Monday to Saturday
  • 9am-7pm on Sundays and public holidays

Musical instruments may not be used for more than one hour per day (this doesn’t necessarily mean consecutive minutes, but they must be used in a reasonable manner i.e. cannot be played infrequently throughout a whole day despite one hour accumulative total) and the windows and doors should be closed.
