The Tribune (NZ) - - CONVERSATIONS -

I have to ap­plaud our city coun­cil for putting on mu­sic con­certs in The Square even if the money could be bet­ter spent on things that will ben­e­fit all of Palmer­ston North.

What I don’t ap­plaud is how ob­nox­iously loud their con­certs are, even more than 2km away it’s loud.

If I choose to go to see and hear the con­certs all well and good, if I choose not, that’s when the is­sue arises.

I have had the op­tion of not hear­ing re­moved, I’ve had my right to choose vi­o­lated, I’ve had my right to peace­ful en­joy­ment of my home as set out in the Ten­ancy Act, vi­o­lated.

I’m not say­ing stop the con­certs, I’m say­ing they don’t have to be heard 2, 3, 4 kms away, turn down the vol­ume, it’s ridicu­lous.

It’s bad enough hav­ing to put up with the ex­ces­sively noisy hill­billy banger rac­ing called Speed­way. Come on PNCC, start obey­ing your own laws and curb the ex­ces­sive noise.

Al Win­der, Palmer­ston North

Con­certs in The Square are caus­ing noisy trou­ble for res­i­dents.
