The management of B-club has invited National Environment Management Authority (NEMA) to assess them in readiness to reopen, a year after the regulator closed it due to non- compliance of the noise regulation policies.
One of the night club directors has said the club has complied to the requirements that NEMA had cited during the closure.
“The management has put effort to comply. We have installed sound proof materials on the walls that minimizes noise pollution and afloating dance stage that minimizes vibrations as revellers enjoy themselves,” he said.
The club was among four prime night clubs in Nairobi that were closed in 2019 following numerous complaints from the public.
Others that were closed indefinitely for failure to comply with the noise regulation policies from NEMA are Space lounge, Kiza and Jiweke Tavern.
The residents within their neighborhoods had on numerous occasions complained of loud music and thundering vibrations that threatened their comfort, safety and health.
“The authority has received numerous noise complaints from members of the public caused by extreme loud music from your facility that interferes with their comfort, health and safety contrary to the provisions of Environmental Management andCoordination Act CAP 387 and the Noise and Excessive Vibration Pollution Control regulations of 2009,” read the letter dated January 10 and signed by Nema director-general Professor Geoffrey Wahungu.
