6. Ordenanzas, Reglamentos, Bandas

When living in Spain, you should know the content of these three words.

An "ordenanza" is an order, issued by the municipal government, for instance that it is forbidden to throw waste outside the areas especially marked for this, or not to make excessive noise during certain hours.

"Reglamentos" are a set of rules for certain areas of life in the municipality, for instance the rules for land use and construction. A "banda" is a proclamation by the mayor, for instance reminding the citizens about the payment of local taxes or charges.

If there is a lot of noise outside your dwelling at night, you can visit the town hall and ask if there are any ordenanzas regulating this, for instance telling dog owners to keep their dog quiet or inside their house during the night. Or if you think a neighbour has built a shed too close to your border, you can ask for the reglamento on distances in such cases.

Ordenanzas and bandas are often exhibited in the different places outside the town hall.
