STOMPer Elaine is perturbed by the noise pollution created by organisers who hold frequent processions at Bedok Reservoir Blk 146. Also, she wonders if this profit-making activity is allowed.
This is not the first time that netizens complain about noisy processions that take place at Bedok Reservoir Road.
"A private procession is held at the void deck of Blk 146 Bedok Reservoir Road very often.
"While I understand we ought to be more tolerant towards one another's religions and activities, the noise pollution and distress caused by this organiser is way too much compared with a typical wedding or funeral wake.
"Moreover, the activity was not held at a domestic level, but more of a profit making activity by the organiser whereby large number of visitors from outside the neighbourhood would come.
"Does the Town Council allow such profit making activity to be held at void decks at the expense of the resident's peace and convenience?
"Tentages were build dangerously and created inconvenience to the car owners who are unable to park their cars properly. The poles were extended too far out and very near the car park lots. Also, the tentages would stay for more than a week each time. Many car park lots were not be safe to park over the period.
"I have personally witnessed a few accidents with cars reversing and knocking into the metal poles at night due to poor visibility.
"Excessive noise pollution late in the night with human activities that could stretch way beyond midnight.
"In 2011 after their 'grand finale night', there was a very heated argument between a resident and the organisers, as the latter were still selfishly creating lots of noise packing their stuffs at 1:30am.
"The argument eventually broke out into a fight with glasses and bottles strewn all over the void deck.
"Dinner tables were set up right in front of the lift door at the lobby.
"Residents have no space to stand while waiting for the lifts.
"Rituals were also held in the middle of the car park."
