Sound By-law


Ear protection elements

 

 

 

 

Enforcement of the Sound By-law is split between the City of London and the London Police Service.

 

 

 

Occupant Noise Enhanced Enforcement - Friday & Saturday evenings


City of London Municipal Law Enforcement Officers respond to noise complaints generated by occupants of a premise (i.e. parties, loud music).  This service is available on Friday evenings from 7:00 p.m. to the following Saturday morning until 3:00 a.m., and Saturday evenings from 7:00 p.m. to the following Sunday morning until 3:00 am.

To register a complaint where an occupant noise is disturbing you during the time frames stated above you may call 519-930-3517.  Please listen to the message in its entirety, and in accordance with the instructions leave a voice message to initiate a complaint investigation.

If you call the number above before 7:00 p.m., or after 2:30 a.m., and listen to the entire message, the call will automatically transfer to London Police Service.

If at any time the noise of concern is related to a criminal or unlawful activity please report this to London Police Services at 519-661-5670 (automatic call transfer), but in the case of an emergency hang up and call 911.


Other Noise Complaints

Not all noise disturbances are from occupant noise; some other common reasons Municipal Law Enforcement Services would become involved in enforcing the Sound By-law are:

  • frequently barking dogs,
  • noisy mechanical equipment such as an air conditioner or pool pump,
  • construction noise.

If you are being disturbed by a noise listed above or something similar and would like to register a complaint please call 519-661-4660 or email enforcement@london.ca during regular business hours (8:30am-4:30pm, Mon-Fri). You can also read the Noise Notes page for more information on this enforcement process and how we may be able to assist you.
