San Pedro Town Council addresses noise pollution

Posted: Thursday, October 18, 2018. 6:08 pm CST.

By BBN Staff: The San Pedro Town Council (SPTC) issued a statement today informing that in accordance with the Intoxicating Liquor Licensing Act Chapter 150, Revised Edition 2011, of the substantive laws of Belize, open bars will no longer be granted a weekly special license/ extension.

Liquor license holders are hereby notified that effective, November 1, 2018, the San Pedro Liquor Licensing Board will not be issuing the extensions.

This is being done in an effort to reduce noise pollution and maintaining the Town of San Pedro as a Child-Friendly Municipality.

Special licenses/extensions will only be granted to liquor license establishments that are soundproof.

“Open bars may only request and may be subject to approval for a special license/extension only during specific and special holidays (Christmas and New Year’s Eve),” says the SPTC.

In continuance with the Town council’s efforts in maintaining San Pedro Town as a Child Friendly Municipality and after receiving numerous complaints from the public, the SPTC strongly discourages any open bar establishment from creating noise pollution (i.e. karaoke events, live band performances, DJ competitions, etc.) and maintaining a moderate sound level (50 db).

The San Pedro Town Council and the San Pedro Liquor Licensing Board appreciate the public’s and all liquor license holder’s cooperation and understanding in promoting a Child-Friendly and Safe Municipality.
