A furious local resident has taken to social media to rip into a contractor caught mowing a strip of grass in the evening. 

The resident who lives on Sydney‘s Northern Beaches shared the footage of a man using a ride-on mower to cut a nature strip at the northern end of Mona Vale Road late on Tuesday night.

‘So it’s OK now to mow the lawns at 10.10pm on a Tuesday night?’ he captioned the Facebook post. 

‘Some of us have to get up at 5am.’ 

Noise from power tools and equipment is not allowed between 8pm to 7am from Monday to Saturday, according to the Northern Beaches Council website.  

A council spokesperson said the mower appeared to be on a medium strip managed by Transport for NSW (TfNSW).

‘Council conducts all mowing within the hours of 7am-5pm,’ the spokesperson added.

‘Should residents be experiencing noise issues in their neighbourhood, Council welcomes residents to make a complaint direct to Customer Service.’

Many social media users agreed it was never acceptable to mow the lawn so late, especially on a weeknight.

‘There are excessive noise limitations set… make a complaint to your local council,’ one woman wrote.

‘Totally illegal! You called the cops right?’ a second asked. 

‘That’s ridiculous,’ one person posted. 

‘That’s a valid complaint,’ another added.

Others were a little more lenient, suggesting the man may have had a reason to mow so late. 

‘If you drive along the main roads at night you’ll see them mowing at that time,’ one local said. 

‘There are parts that make it difficult to do during the day, so they have no choice.’ 

Another wrote: ‘If it’s a one-off, who bloody cares?’
