If these questions sound familiar you are not alone, Many residents in West Vancouver are uncertain about what is an acceptable noise level, along with what the appropriate times are for certain activities in West Vancouver. The solution to these questions and more can be found in our local noise control bylaws.

The Noise Control Bylaw No. 4404, 2005 outlines the regulations that help preserve the quiet, peace, rest, enjoyment, comfort, and convenience of the community. These rules cover various types of noise, from residential activities to construction and vehicle operations, ensuring that our districts remain pleasant and livable for all residents.

I encourage you to review these bylaws as part of our collective effort to be considerate neighbours.

By following these guidelines, we not only enhance our own living conditions but also contribute positively to the overall quality of life in our neighbourhoods.
