Orakei local board launches noise complaint campaign

Caryn Wilkinson Reporter from Community News

Residents and businesses in Mission Bay are being urged to report noise pollution from cars with loud exhausts and booming stereos.

The Orakei local board has launched a noise complaint campaign to encourage members of the community to take a stand.

Cars with super loud exhaust systems or retrofit stereos were some of the most difficult noise nuisances to deal with, said board chairman Scott Milne.

And meetings with residents, police, noise control officers and local board members have revealed that many instances of excessive noise were not being reported, he said.

Mission Bay Resident's Association chairman Don Stock said it only took a few inconsiderate show-offs to spoil the enjoyment of the suburb "but perhaps the actions of a few active residents can make a difference."

It is hoped the board campaign will boost the number of instances reported and ultimately cut noise issues for Mission Bay, said Milne.

You can dob in noisy cars to police on 501 or noise from other sources to Auckland Council: 09 301 0101

Have you seen this man?

Caryn Wilkinson Reporter from Community News

Police investigating the aggravated robbery of the Vincent Mini Mart in Auckland's CBD would like to speak to this man.

They would also like to talk to the two customers who were in the store about 2.30 pm on Saturday.

At that time, a man entered the store and stood behind a shelving unit while the sole staff member served two customers.

When the customers left, the man allegedly pointed a firearm at the staff member and demanded money.

He left the shop with an undisclosed sum, turned right onto Vincent St and walked towards Hopetoun Bridge.

Phone police on 105 and quote file number 210123/0838 or anonymously via Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
