Noise Guide for the Preserved Opal Fields (SP1 Zones)
There are about 1,900 mining camps located on opal mining fields in the vicinity of Lightning Ridge and Grawin/Glengarry areas. Council occasionally receives complaints about noise in these areas.
Council has prepared a Noise Guide for residents of the "preserved" opal fields which can be downloaded via the link below. The guide outlines the rights and responsibilities of mining camp residents, as well as the process that Council follows when dealing with noise complaints.
