AN outdoor venue on Lamma Island is the latest to generate complaints about excessive noise, with a pop concert on Sunday attracting a barrage of objections. It was the third concert staged in recent months at a former open-air seafood restaurant on Hung Shing Yeh, the island's public beach. The performance began at about 6.30 pm, attracted an estimated 400 people, and also drew the attention of Lamma police, who asked organisers to lower the volume. Station Sergeant Tsoi Sai-nang, assistant officer in charge of Lamma police, summoned the venue's owner, Mok Yue-cheuk, for questioning yesterday and warned him against allowing further concerts. ''Lamma is not a live-music venue,'' Sergeant Tsoi said. ''It is a peaceful place and we have warned Mr Mok to co-operate with police and not allow any further live music on the premises or else we will take action against him.'' But the warning disappointed many Lamma residents and shop owners, who said the concerts were good for tourism. Dan James, a resident and member of one of Sunday's bands, said the venue was unique in the territory. A compromise should be arranged between organisers and residents who had complained about noise. ''The atmosphere at the beach is fabulous and everybody has a really good time and is well behaved,'' Mr James said. ''This decision is very disappointing but if there are complaints over the gigs, then a compromise should be sought, as banning any further shows will not be in Lamma's best tourism interests.''
