Basketball Noise Complaint Rejected

As per my previous post about a neighbour’s complaint that a young basketball player was making too much noise, the Ministry of the Environment has rejected the woman’s complaint. The ruling stated that legal intervention is warranted only when an excessive use of one’s property causes substantial inconvenience beyond what others in the vicinity can be expected to bear, having regard to the character of the neighbourhood. The playing of basketball at a home would be considered normal use of a property in residential neighborhood.

The woman can (and has) made complaints under local noise bylaws.
