Alfaz del Pi has introduced by-laws to combat excess noise.
Alfaz del Pi has introduced by-laws to combat noise pollution and protect the environment.
The legislation comprises a total of 56 articles aimed at controlling excessive noise and vibrations, said town hall spokesman Toni Such.
The bylaws set out procedures to be followed in the case of noise pollution “in all surroundings whether public or private,” according to Such.
They also allow the town hall to “adopt and apply corrective measures, define limits and take whatever steps it deems to be necessary.”
Premises with music must keep to specific hours and should be equipped with the required levels of soundproofing and a limiter subject to permanent inspections, Such continued.
“All this will take time,” the spokesman conceded, not least because the new regulations imply a change of habits.
“But the initiative will bear fruit and benefit the general wellbeing of all residents,” Such added.
