Vancouver aims to modernize and enhance Noise Control By-law

THE City of Vancouver is undertaking an extensive review to modernize and enhance the Noise Control By-law. As a part of the first phase of this multi-year project the City is seeking input from everyone who lives, works or operates a business in Vancouver.

The City is asking people to share what they think about the City’s approach to regulating noise in Vancouver and identify areas that could be improved. The online survey should take around 10-15 minutes to complete.

The City says it  supports protecting the public’s right to enjoy public spaces without unreasonable noise nuisances, while also supporting economic and cultural activity and growth. Feedback received will help identify area of focus for staff and shape future revisions to the by-law. Results will be included in an update to Council later this year.

Visit the Shape Your City page to learn more about the Noise Control By-law review and to complete the online survey, which is open until May 30.  Auto-translations are available at the top of the page.
