Noise crackdown

Poverty and mental health addressed

Old Town photo, where a noise reduction is targetted

The councillor of the Municipality of Funchal with the “Urbanism” brief, João Rodrigues, announces to the newspaper the “revision of the noise regulation”. The changes include new opening hours for bars and more attention to the neighbourhood of commercial spaces in an attempt to control noise – thus the lead photo of the Old Town.

Rodrigues has been in the spotlight recently, having responsibility for the proposed new development at Praia Formosa.

Poverty and mental health addressed

In an interview with JM, the regional secretary for Social Inclusion and Citizenship accuses the opposition of not being serious in its approach to poverty. According to Rita Andrade, the risk of poverty indicators do not benefit ultraperipheral regions such as Madeira and the Azores, and therefore criticizes the opposition for doing “little” when addressing this issue.

Rita Andrade also underlined the reduction of unemployed people, from 22,000 to 8,400, from 2015 to the present, and guarantees that “debts will never again expire” to Social Security.

Sara Cerdas., the MEP, reveals to JM the expectation of creating a new specific funding line for mental health, a proposal that will be part of the report on mental health for which she is the rapporteur. At JM, Cerdas assumed she was still available for a new term in Brussels.

  1. Apparently the festa in Ribeira Brava has been going on all through the night and very loud. The racket from it could be heard in Tanya!

    • I just moved after 6 years in Lugar do baixo and sao pedro in ribera brava was a few days of full on rave music all night
      But if we want to talk about noise reduction let’s open Pandora’s box and say dogs put outside all night barking are the real problem not once a year Festas

  2. The noise from “racing” motorbike, particularly at night or the early hours, is the most irritating and annoying noise on the Island
    It even interrupts telephone conversations

  3. We, unfortunately live near a poultry farm that is ilegal. The noise they make after midnight when they take the birds to slaughter is so bad they wake you up. The custodians of the Penal Code I. E. the PSP are deaf and don’t bother coming to investigate. My experience with the CMF is they don’t care unless it affects the image of the PSD or their friends.
    Change for change sake is only lip service and totally meaningless.

  4. Well everyone around where are complete right about everything I did live in UK from 1999 until 2018/19 and now I live in Sintra and the worse is people that never take their dogs out from their houses gardens and use them was away of intimidation for people walk in the pavement this isn’t right or correct. Bring back the UK dogs better educated and well behaved and trained .

  5. I would live here permanently if it were not for the dogs barking all night (an offence in the UK), noisy beat music going on all night in the name of Festas, ditto noisy rockets, which set the dogs off barking – what is the point of those? No consideration given to babies sleeping, elderly people or those sick and disabled. Add noise element to forthcoming strikes and inability to land due to high winds, I am not sure it is worth the hassle coming to Madeeira!

      Depends where you go to live or stay where I live in Sintra my street it is a cul de sac in Sintra centre it is only houses and gardens and mine it is the last one of the street I have a neighbour with a dog that doesn’t bark at me and my family and the other neighbour was two dogs that dont bark anymore since they know me and in the evening is quiet and during the day . The main problem is street up far away of my house there is tree houses that owners never take the dogs out and like to use them was away of intimidation people to not walk in the pavement certain times of they day they are out other times not but they like to bark when you walking despite living where for over 4 years . I blame the owners for there behaviour .
