Nashville Lifts Its Restrictions on Home Recording Studios

Nashville’s Metro Council has lifted restrictions on home recording studios that were put into place back in 1998, as Billboard points out. The new bill was partly created in response to the financial stress brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic.

According to the bill, the original regulations created “a hardship on residents seeking additional income to survive in a city with a skyrocketing cost of living.” “Permitting limited home-based business activity will protect the residential character of neighborhoods while allowing more Nashvillians to earn supplemental income to remain in their homes,” the document continues. View the full bill here.

The new ordinance was enacted on July 8, and will allow up to six customers to visit a home recording studio between the operating hours of 8 a.m. and 7 p.m., Monday through Saturday. An “Outward Appearance” clause in the bill states that “a home occupation may not produce noise, vibration, smoke, dust or other particulate matter, odorous matter, heat, glare, humidity, fumes, electrical interference, waste run-off, or other objectionable effects outside the dwelling unit or garage.”
