The Da Nang’s municipal leader on Wednesday ordered relevant authorities to escalate their monitoring of noise violations in residential areas throughout the city.

According to the Da Nang City People’s Committee, reports of noise pollution from home karaoke and business PR activities have risen steeply in recent years, prompting the city leader to mandate regulations as outlined in Official Dispatch No. 2812, issued on May 4, 2019.

Despite the mandate, noise pollution in the central city has endured over the years, disrupting social order, public health, and domestic lives of local residents.

Considering the circumstances, the chairman of Da Nang City People’s Committee has now ordered relevant agencies and lower-level authorities to strictly comply with and report on the implementation of Official Dispatch No. 2812.

Functional forces are required to thoroughly address noise violations in households by including it as a metric for the annual appraisal of the “cultural family” title.

The municipal Department of Justice is required to cooperate with the Department of Natural Resources and Environment and relevant agencies to conduct research on current regulations and form an elaborate guideline on punishments for noise violations in residential areas, which must be completed by the end of March.

Chairpersons of ward- and commune-level People’s Committees have been instructed to roll out campaigns to promote messages in the city leader’s statement until May 31. Administration penalties will be introduced on June 1.

Grassroots task forces are required to boost monitoring and collection of reports on noise violations in residential areas.

Leaders of wards, communes, districts and relevant agencies will be held accountable before the city leader if noise issues from karaoke and business PR persist in their area.
