Sydney Opera House Noise Complaint

It has been announced this week that the iconic Sydney Opera House has been fined AUD $15,000 for breaching noise restrictions at an outdoor concert at the venue.

It is understood the internationally-renowned performing arts complex was successfully sued by the ‘Opera House Concerned Citizens Group’, a collective of nearby residential neighbours – following an outdoor ‘Florence and the Machine’ rock concert, attended by more than 6,000 revelers, in November 2015.

The litigious action-group made claim the concert sound levels amounted to noise pollution, that the attendees caused significant disruption to the local area – and that the temporary stage structures, erected for the concert, constituted an eyesore.

The $15,000 fine is the highest possible issuable in the State for breaching noise restrictions.
