Construction Noise Definition
Construction Noise is defined as constructing, erecting, reconstructing, altering, repairing or demolishing any building, structure or thing or excavating or filling in land which disturbs the quiet, peace, rest, enjoyment, comfort or convenience of the neighbourhood or of persons in the vicinity.
Construction Noise is permitted between 7am and 10pm, Monday through Saturday, including statutory holidays. No construction for profit or gain is permitted on Sunday. This means property owners can do construction work on Sunday on their own property, but cannot hire any trades to do construction work on a Sunday.
