Public Notice - Noise Exemption
December 3, 2013 -
Queen's University has made application for a permanent exemption to Noise Control By-Law 2004-52 Schedule "A" to permit noise from whistles at their sports fields located at the corner of Sir John A MacDonald Boulevard and Johnson Street between the hours of 9 a.m. and 12 Midnight, Monday to Sunday and on Statutory Holidays. The current by-law prohibits this activity at all times.
Queen's University has also made application for a permanent exemption to Noise Control By-Law 2004-52 Schedule "B", Activity 15 to permit noise from yelling, shouting, hooting, whistling, singing or the playing of musical instruments, including percussion instruments at their sports fields located at the corner of Sir John A Boulevard and Johnson Street between the hours of 9 a.m. and 12 midnight, Monday to Sunday and on Statutory Holidays.
The current by-law prohibits this activity from 9 p.m. of one day to 7 a.m. of next day and 9 a.m. on Sundays. As an alternative to this exemption, the applicant seeks a change in the designation of these areas from ‘residential' to become ‘other areas' to limit such noise to no later than 11 p.m. as laid out in the Noise By-law Schedule ‘B' Activity #15 to be consistent with the non-residential nature of the facility.
