To assist in the 2008 review of the residential noise Regulations, a story-gathering process was used to obtain views from the Victorian community. The stories provided a valuable insight into the issues associated with residential noise. EPA thanks all the residents who shared their experiences, and the councils and community groups that helped with the story sessions.
