Hi neighbours....I have lived on peachgrove road for one year..... one morning I got woke up to what I thought was a carnival. I was annoyed to be woken up and didn't know what it was.... but then it was every few weeks through winter.... then in summer it changed to in the evenings when I had my child to get to sleep....I went and asked them to stop..... then I asked twice more each month... the third time they flat out said no... and it went til past 9pm.....I got two others coming up very arrogant telling me to go to noise control.....I rang noise control they said ring the police....I rang the police they said ring the council..... because it's on the road and not in a property none of them wanted to deal with it....I did find out that if they don't have a permit they can be shut down....I am guessing they don't.... today and a few weeks ago they woke me up yet again..... its about 2 down from the 5x roads bar..... is this noise annoying anyone else? Does anyone have the answer to get rid of them...... its so annoying gangster singing and shouting and noise..... and they have ppl standing in the middle of the road handing out flyers for their Christian group.... they do it all round Hamilton.....I said to them why can't you go do it in a park or a skate park not across from my house.... with an arrogant response....I have looked up noise pollution today and by the looks of it thru should be shut down.... and I can get as n enforcement order but I have to pay.... any help or ideas would be greatly appreciated...I have insomnia so I get to sleep about 6 or 7am then to be woke up like this is awful

The NZ Transport Agency Board has approved a business case for the next steps in a start-up trial Hamilton to Auckland passenger rail service, to begin March 2020.
“We know more and more people are commuting between Hamilton and Auckland, and introducing this trial service will give them a choice in how they do that,” Minister Phil Twyford said.
The business case allows for the fit-out of rolling stock and the detailed design of infrastructure. The total cost of the five year trial, including the service operated by KiwiRail, is estimated at $78.2 million, including $68.4 million from the NZ Transport Agency and $9.8 million from local authorities.
It would stop in Hamilton at Frankton and The Base in Rotokauri before going onto Huntly and finally stopping in Papakura in Auckland, where passengers can change onto the Auckland Public Transport Network. Future stops may include, Te Kauwhata, Pokeno and Tuakau.
A new station including a platform and Park & Ride parking area will be created as part of the Rotokauri rail stop and the Huntly platform will need to be upgraded.
Well done all those who worked hard to make this happen.
