The Ministry of Public Infrastructure wishes to notify members of the public that approvals will not be granted for the use of the Kingston Foreshore (between Fort Groyne and the Camp Street) as a venue for entertainment, social and other events which are likely to generate noise above the permissible levels specified in Guidelines for Noise Emission into the Environment. This includes all events involving the use of loud audio and video systems, including those installed in motor vehicles and events characterised by crowd generated noise.
All approvals previously granted by the Ministry for such events have been annulled. The organisers of such those events, having been duly notified of the annulment of their approvals, are advised to use alternative venues and operate in conformity with applicable regulations for use of public spaces.
Members of the public are reminded that no unauthorised use of any sea or river defence reserve will be permitted. All persons and entities, including Government agencies desirous of utilising any section of sea or river defence reserve are required to apply to the Sea Defence Board for approval. Failure to comply with this requirement will result in legal action against the violators involved in conformity with the Sea Defence Act Cap.64.02 of the laws of Guyana.
