By-Law and Enforcement Services – Continuous Noise
Noise is defined as any unwanted sound. The City of Brampton By-Law 93-84 states that a person shall not, within the City of Brampton, make, create, cause or permit noises likely to disturb inhabitants. Brampton City Council passed the bylaw to curb persistent and reocurring noise that lasts longer than ten days.
The bylaw specifically prohibits noises such as:
- A dog barking daily and excessively
- Someone playing a loud stereo or musical equipment regularly.
- Someone operating construction equipment daily before 7 a.m. and after 11 p.m.
You must call Peel Regional Police to complain about noise from fighting, screaming, shouting, swearing, singing, or someone using insulting or obscene language or other disorderly conduct. These activities may be criminal offences. City bylaw officers will refer complaints about loud parties to the police.
When you report a noise violation, we must establish the particulars of the complaint before we proceed with legal action. In every case, you must be involved in the process.
If you require further assistance, please contact 311 or 905-874-2000.
