Pubs, clubs, restaurants, and café noise
Sometimes the music or entertainment from a club, pub, restaurant, or café is too loud and disturbs people in the area.
According to the Noise Control Bylaw, different sound levels (measured in decibels) are allowed under different conditions. For example:
- If the interior sound level is greater than 90 decibels, the business must post a designated warning sign, in clear view, at the entrance.
- If speakers are used, all components must be located within the building per the License Bylaw.
