Request for the Province to Rescind Provincial Regulation Overriding Toronto’s Construction Noise
Request for the Province to Rescind the Provincial Regulation Overriding Toronto’s Construction Noise By-Law - by Councillor Kristyn Wong-Tam, seconded by Councillor Joe Cressy
City Council on June 29 and 30, 2020, adopted the following:
1. City Council request the Province of Ontario to immediately rescind Ontario Regulation 130/20.
The regulation overrode the City’s Noise Bylaw to extend permitted hours of construction from 7 am to 7 pm Monday to Friday and from 9am to 7pm on Saturday and none on Sunday to 6am to 10pm everyday until October 2021 – with the rationale being CoVID. No changes made so far.
