The municipality of Ayia Napa will request a decree banning the circulation of quad bikes and large-capacity motorcycles to tackle noise pollution during the summer months.

The municipality is planning to ban the vehicles from some areas, by type, or for a number of roads for a period of time, for example from 6 pm until 6 am.

Before making a decision, mayor Yiannis Karousos said, the municipality will consult with all stakeholders, including residents and motorbike and quad bike rentals.

Interested parties are asked to submit their views by email to [email protected] or by delivering them to the municipality on March 20.
