The Port Noise Liaison Committee (PNLC) comprises seven members, three Port Hills Residents elected by the community, three appointed by Port Nelson Ltd, and an Independent Chairman. The PNLC meets at least 4 times per year.

The role of the PNLC is to:

  • Consider all noise issues arising from the Port operation;
  • Carry out the functions identified in and oversee the implementation of the Port Noise Management Plan and Port Noise Mitigation Plan;
  • Ensure the Port is aware of the noise concerns of its neighbours and are taking steps to minimise and mitigate Port noise;
  • Ensure the Port is accurately measuring noise levels;
  • Ensure the Port and Port users adopt the best practical options to ensure noise does not exceed a reasonable level;
  • Monitor the acoustic treatment of properties within the noise contour areas.

The PNLC meets quarterly and the minutes from recent meetings can be found in the side menu.
