Changes - Environment Protection - Victoria

30 August 2021

Attributed to VCGLR Newsletter

On 1 July 2021, changes were made to the way noise emissions are regulated under the Environment Protection Act 1970 and subordinate legislation.

These changes included the removal of the State Environment Protection Policy (Control of Music Noise from Public Premises) No. N-2 (SEPP N-2).

As a result of these changes, if you hold a liquor licence that has a condition referring to SEPP N-2, you will shortly receive an email or letter regarding a proposed variation to your liquor licence conditions. The proposed variation is to remove the SEPP N-2 condition.

Licence holders will have 21 days’ notice to raise any objections to the proposed variation. If there is no objection, no action is required.

If the variation is made, licensees are still required to comply with the amenity condition on their liquor licence. This condition requires licensees not to cause or permit undue detriment to the amenity of the area including from noise related to the premises.
