Tebogo Patience Mahapa, Wellington Siziba, Shadung J. Moja


The majority of South Africans live in communities that are somewhat exposed to noise pollution. Noise has the capability to cause conflict between those who are generating it and those who are victims of it. People do tolerate noise to a certain extent, but when noise becomes a nuisance it infringes other people’s rights and that can lead to irritation and frustration. The purpose of this study was to investigate the occurrence of environmental noise pollution emanating from nightclubs and restaurant bars on the community of Melville, Johannesburg. A quantitative research method was followed using a calibrated Sound Level Meter to measure noise at 10 different measuring points. The noise measurements were randomly sampled within the study area on weekends and public holidays during the day from 10h00 to 14h30 and at night from 22h00 to 02h30.
