Noise

“quiet stay" with "leaf blower free” zone

Many leaf blowers far overstep the noise level of 60 db at which "loud machinery" is classified. In the interest of a peaceful, stress-free life in our residential area, we would ask you to limit the use of leaf blowers on your plot either by yourselves or gardeners to a minimum. There is a local law in Altea, which prohibits loud construction equipment or any loud equipment in a residential area in the summer months (July and August), and are only allowed in the other months of the year between 09:00 to 14:00 and 16:00 to 20:00 hours. We thank you for your understanding
