Puy-de-Dôme: the bell tower of his village rings more than 500 times a day

In the village of Ceyrat, near Clermont-Ferrand (Puy-de-Dôme), the bell tower of the village of Boisséjour rings more than 500 times a day. An exasperated inhabitant is mobilizing to stop the nuisance.

Gaël, inhabitant of the village, estimates at 564 the number of ringing of bells per day, of which 160 at night. Installed with his family since last December, he denounces noise pollution that he is not the only one to suffer.

“In my room, we are at 38 decibels. It’s just impossible to sleep at night in these conditions. There are about fifteen households sleeping badly, ”he testifies to France Bleu Pays d’Auvergne.

“I am not a Parisian”

“I’m not a Parisian who can’t stand the noise of the countryside,” says Gaël, a native of the region. We are fully aware that the bells bring a traditional aspect, which is pleasant during the day, but at night, that is not possible. ”

The father asks only one thing, that the bells stop from 10 p.m. to 8 a.m. He even launched a petition which collected about fifteen signatures. But nothing helps. Mayor Anne-Marie Picard (SE) refuses to put an end to what she and other residents consider a tradition to be preserved.

The question will be definitively decided on October 5, during a neighborhood council.
