Licensed Venue Assessments

With urban densities constantly increasing, encroachment is a problem that licensed venues and residential developers need to address on a regular basis. In Victoria, music from venues is covered under SEPP N-2 and existing live music venues are protected under the Planning Scheme Provisions Clause 52.43 (Agent of Change).

At Clarity Acoustics, we have significant experience with assessment and recommendations for control of music and patron noise from licensed venues including assessments under Clause 52.43 (Agent of Change). We also work closely with venue operators in the application, assessment and noise management under the Good Music Neighbours Grant scheme.

We also have experience with licensed venues and policy relating to entertainment/music noise in New South Wales, Queensland and Western Australia.

Recent experience includes noise assessments of:

  • Existing pubs and nightclubs
  • Proposed entertainment precincts
  • Residential developments proposed near existing venues.
