RESIDENTS of Rove police quarters say life has not been the same again after a nearby sea front facility was turned into an entertainment area.
“Noise coming from the sea front area has been a major source of disturbance to those of us living here,” one resident told the Solomon Star.
“Sometimes when they have a fight, they would throw stone at each other, posing great risk to our children,” added another.
The sea front facility was located on a reclaimed land.
It was a project initiated by former West Honiara MP Isaac Inoke as an income generating project for youths of the constituency.
But residents there said the facility has now been turned into an entertainment area and alcohol is being sold there day and night.
“Liquor seems to be sold there 24 hours a day, which is illegal,” one resident complained.
“The activities going on there seem to be going on 24 hours a day and this is causing a lot of disturbances as well as posing threat to our community.
“We raised the matter with the police but no action has been taken,” the resident said.
Comments are being sought from the police.
