What the results tell us for Palerang

At the end of this reporting period (1 July 2000 to 30 June 2004) Palerang Council had no formal register of complaints from the new council's records. There was no information available from the former shires of Yarrowlumla or Tallaganda that transferred to the new council area in February 2004.

Recent anecdotal evidence suggests that noise from motor bikes is the main issue in rural residential areas, while barking dogs attract the most complaints in the villages.

Council is in the process of formulating policies and guidelines for recording and acting on noise complaints, including producing education material for new ratepayers and staff compliance training.
