Residents encouraged to provide input on noise regulations in Oakville

Friday, April 01, 2022

The Town of Oakville is reviewing current noise regulations in Oakville and is asking residents and businesses to provide their input. The short online survey is open until April 15, 2022 and will help staff develop recommendations to the town’s noise by-law, which aims to balance noise from most activities in a way that respects everyone's right to an enjoyable community and peaceful lifestyle.

The online survey will take about five minutes to complete and will be strictly confidential and anonymous. Residents will have the option to provide an email address if they would like to receive updates on the review.

The town is also hosting an in-person public information meeting in the South Atrium of Town Hall on Thursday, April 14 from 6 to 7:30 p.m. Residents and businesses are encouraged to drop by to provide their feedback. Staff will also be available to discuss the current community noise standards, outdated and/or unclear terms and definitions within the noise by-law, and other noise-related topics.

Please take the short online survey, drop by the public meeting at Town Hall on April 14 or send your comments by email to  

Revisions to the noise by-law will be presented for Council’s approval later this year.

To learn more about noise regulations, read the noise by-law or visit the Noise Issues page. 

“I encourage residents to take the town’s five-minute online survey or drop by our in-person public information night on April 14 to provide feedback that will help update noise regulations in Oakville. Our goal is to improve the noise by-law to ensure that Oakville continues to be a safe, inclusive, and enjoyable community for all our residents.”
