Orange Shop boss given noise warning
I refer to the letter by Peter Sun headlined 'Seeing red over Orange's indifference' (South China Morning Post, May 24), regarding the noise coming from the Orange Shop in Aberdeen Centre.
We conducted a site investigation on May 25 and found that the noise came from loudspeakers installed near the exit of the Orange Shop, which was playing a commercial recording to attract the attention of passersby. This type of noise is controlled under Section 5 of the Noise Control Ordinance which is enforced by the police.
We have referred this case to the police for appropriate action.
We have also warned the manager of the Orange Shop to be considerate and have asked him to minimise the noise level.
If Mr Sun continues to have problems with the noise, he should ring the police (2827 7200) and seek immediate assistance.
