Noise regulations and guidelines in Singapore
There are different types of noise. In Singapore, it can be broadly classified into noise from neighbours, congregational noise, traffic noise and construction noise, among others.
- • Noise from neighbours refers to noise from residential units. This can be in the form of noise from renovations or DIY works, residents’ daily activities such as TV or gatherings, or movement and items such as furniture dragging and item dropping.
- • Congregational noise refers to noise from common areas around residential estates. This can be in the form of noise from nearby facilities and areas such as playgrounds, void decks, and coffeeshops.
In a dense living environment like Singapore, experiencing noise may be inevitable, which can lead to conflicts and disputes among residents. Thus, it is important for us to manage noise issues well.
