The time has come for the council to start clamping down on the next issue that has starting to creep into our quality of life here in Queenstown. Namely NOISE POLLUTION (sorry I had to say that loud to be heard over the din). Whilst many residents have jumped to oppose the proposed airport expansion, some businesses seem to revel in inflicting their business on all and sundry. Now not only do we have to put up with noise from aircraft, traffic, jet boat and other water users, construction, compressors, now, down town businesses particularly those few at the top of the mall and Camp Street conduct their business at earsplitting volume not only inside the premises (pity the poor staff) but are able to inflict it on the general public as well. There needs to be better monitoring of this before downtown becomes an intolerable place to be.
