Police Receive Noise Complaints This Morning

July 31, 2021 | 8 Comments

The police confirmed they “received a number of noise complaints as a result of the volume level of music played during an event which took place at Bernard Park in the early hours of this morning.”

A police spokesperson said, “The organisers co-operated with police following requests to turn down the music in light of those complaints from nearby residents. A noise permit was granted, as is required for events of this nature.

“That notwithstanding, the BPS will ensure that music at such events is played at a volume level which will allow for the enjoyment of participants, but not adversely affect the peace and quiet of surrounding neighbourhoods. Particularly during the early morning hours.”

While the police did not specify the event in question, the Bacchanal Run — which had been issued a large group exemption and required a Safekey– took place early this morning [July 31], with attendees meeting at Bernard Park before heading out on the road.

    Friday night and Saturday night NOISE!
    Why are these events held in places that affect the most densely populated parts of the island? Friday night was heard all the way in SMITHS PARISH!!!!
    Why not use cross island?

    I was kept awake in Smiths….5am…6am…7am something finally went off!!! Why on earth would a permit be issued for something that disrupts so many Bermudians?

      Rugby classic doesn’t start or end first in the early morning hours. So your false equivalency is just dumb. But to be expected unfortunately.

      Big difference is that The Rugby Classic brings in tourist dollars.

Are you serious a 22 square piece of land and your selfish ass just wants your way all the time forget the others living here it’s all about your happiness. Small Island Small Ass Brains…Pathetic how people are so selfish

    I was impressed that the organizers came to our houses nearby, to explain and apologize in advance for any noise. Maybe they could extend this to all affected areas and to the public, so that goes some way in informing neighborhoods and seeking their co-operation.

    Arranging to hose down ‘paint’ affected streets afterwards would also lessen any impact to neighbors.

    A Permit was granted is the noise level specified? If not the common sense answer here is to make a public announcement in say a paper, tv news or radio. To alert people of the event. Simple. Done and dusted.
