We Need Your Input: Noise Bylaw

At its meeting on May 14, 2024, Council had its first reading of a draft Noise Bylaw. The intent of this survey is to gather feedback on the proposed bylaw, especially Schedule B. Schedule B sets out days of the week and times when certain activities that make, emit, permit, or cause noise are prohibited.

Comments must be submitted before July 31, 2024.

Council will be reviewing the comments submitted at its meeting on August 20, 2024. You can view the schedule of upcoming council meetings online.

Review the Draft Bylaw

You can review the draft bylaw online:

The draft bylaw contains a definition of “Noise” that is as follows:

“Noise” means a sound or vibration that at the point of reception, by its volume or nature, is likely to disturb the inhabitants.

This definition is supported by extensive case law. While it may seem counter intuitive, the courts have determined that the definition is objective as a reasonable person can discern if a sound is likely to disturb not just an individual, but the inhabitants.
