I wish to draw the authorities attention to an on ongoing noise nuisance problem at Curtis Street, Albouystown.
Every Sunday night music could be heard blaring from the large speaker boxes until the early hours of Monday morning. This has been ongoing for months. I have reported the issue on several occasions via telephone to the Ruimveldt Police Station including last Sunday night, but this has proved to be an exercise in futility as the ‘dance’ usually continues after 4 am. Whether they actually dispatch the patrol as promised is unknown.
Apart from being a major noise nuisance, the bass from the speakers causes car alarms to constantly go off, forcing persons to turn off their alarms and leave their cars at risk.
One wonders if and how these individuals could be given permits to hold a loud outdoor event on a Sunday night. What is even more puzzling is that during the night police patrols traverse Albouystown and surely they must hear this deafening noise.
I am therefore calling on the relevant authorities to investigate and address this problem urgently.
