DAB LegCo member Elizabeth Quat, DAB Business & Professional Affairs Committee member and Chairman of Kwun Tong District Council Wilson Or, DAB Business & Professional Affairs Committee member and lawyer Lau Ngai, and esteemed actor Steven Ma, who personally experienced the distress of noise nuisance from his neighbors, attended a meeting hosted by Tse Chin-wan, Secretary for Environment and Ecology Bureau. The purpose of the meeting was to engage in a meaningful exchange of views on effective strategies for addressing the issue of noise pollution originating from residential premises.
During the meeting, we collectively recommended that the government take necessary measures to amend existing legislation, and utilize advanced technology for the purpose of gathering substantial evidence in noise-related cases. Additionally, we emphasized the importance of enhancing inter-departmental cooperation to strengthen law enforcement efforts. We proposed an increase in the penalty level associated with noise-related offenses to effectively address the issue of noise pollution originating from residential premises.
Through these recommendations, we aim to provide practical and effective solutions to combat the problem of noise nuisance. It is our sincere hope that the government will carefully consider these suggestions and take decisive actions to protect the well-being and quality of life for all residents.
