On July 28, 2020, staff proposed a new Anti-Noise Bylaw to the Planning and Development Committee for consideration. Read related Staff Report, which includes the original Anti-Noise Bylaw from 1980 and the new Anti-Noise Bylaw as first proposed, here.
This bylaw is expected to receive first, second and third readings at the Council meeting set for October 6, 2020.
In addition to general regulations, which aim to prevent people from disturbing their neighbours through excessive noise-making, the bylaw also provides specific regulations around activities such as construction and use of power equipment, as well as guidance of “Quiet Hours”.
Those specific regulations are summarized in the table below:
Following adoption of the new Anti-Noise Bylaw, there will be a public education period to build awareness of the new regulations.
To provide comment on the proposed bylaw prior to its adoption, please email the Bylaw Department at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
