The Noise Abatement Act has been amended to allow for longer hours for party events during the Christmas season.
The amendment made on Tuesday (Dec 10) will allow for events to go till 2 am during the week and 4 am on the weekends. This extension is to last up January 31, 2020.
The restriction of the act has been a source of much concern for party promoters.
Entertainers and industry players have been beseeching the government to extend the lock-off time to no avail. They are, however, thankful for the temporary extension.
