COMPLAINTS from residents in Roquetas de Mar regarding excessive noise have led the town hall to consider installing sound level meters around Aguadulce.
The equipment would be placed in nightlife areas, mainly the marina, the 501 Shopping Centre, Rambla de San Antonio and the seafront promenade.
Noise was one of the main problems discussed at a recent meeting between resident and the town hall, and the local Environmental Councillor explained that the possibility of installing sound level meters which would automatically detect violations of the legal noise limits and transmit them to the Local Police was being considered.
Exceeding the limits would lead to the offending establishments being closed down.
According to residents in the Rambla de San Antonio area, when the bars and discos close, youths gather in the street to drink and the noise makes it impossible to sleep, as well as them leaving the streets full of rubbish and destroying urban furniture such as bins and benches.
