Noise from construction
Construction is a necessary - but often noisy - part of a growing and vibrant Vancouver.
Construction can take place at any time, so long as the noise does not affect others.
The Noise Control Bylaw specifies the hours and days when you can make construction-related noise.
The times are:
|Private property||City streets, lanes, and boulevards|
|Monday to Friday||7:30am to 8:00pm||7:00am to 8:00pm|
|Saturday||10:00am to 8:00pm||7:00am to 8:00pm|
|Sunday||No construction-related noise permitted||10:00am to 8:00pm|
|Holidays||No construction-related noise permitted||10:00am to 8:00pm|
Outside of these hours, construction noise is only allowed with a noise bylaw exception permit.
