Launching The Noise App in Australia

7th August 2019 The Noise App

Earlier this year, The Noise App was released in Australia with our partners, Kernow Environmental Services and already, the app is getting attention in local and national media. Five councils in the State of Victoria are trialling the app and it has already been getting attention from regional and national newspapers and TV morning shows, ‘Today’ and ‘Sunrise’.

The app is currently being trialled by the City of Casey, Mitchell, Surf Coast, Moira and Brimbank Councils and as reported by the Geelong Advertiser, there were nearly 850 noise reports made over the past two years by residents in the Geelong and Surf Coast areas.

The app will help residents provide a digital trail of evidence, allowing them to submit reports as the noise nuisance is happening. This will, in turn, create a more detailed picture for the council in investigating noise complaints and allow quicker resolution of issues. The app has also been covered by the national newspaper, Herald Sun.

Morning TV shows, ‘Today’ and ‘Sunrise’ highlighted the apps. During the ‘Sunrise’ segment, a panel of individuals were consulted for their opinions, including Dr Kerryn Phelps, Sydney councillor and former federal MP. She said that “It’s not always easy to have a word with a very noisy neighbour and not always safe either. Councils…want to provide customer service, so if it’s more efficient, people are able to get on to their councils, get action on a noise complaint and actually prove the noise actually happened, rather than someone being difficult and making a vexatious claim, then I think there’s a lot of merit in this idea.”

We are thrilled that The Noise App is quickly gaining momentum in Australia and helping residents and councils tackle noise nuisance in new ways.
