Fed up with loud dance music blaring from the void deck every weekend for the past year and a half, Clementi residents took to Facebook to voice their displeasure.
Disgruntled resident Jake Tan Posted December 31st Concerning the noise from the “inconsiderate mass of people” exercising in the outdoor pavilion between Blocks 428 and 429 on Clementi Avenue 3.
Starting in mid-2021, the area will host weekly early morning dance sessions, Tan said.
“Every week, dance music is played loudly, yelling, clapping, and rudely waking up everyone in the nearby block, especially those living on the lower floors,” said the seven-minute segment of the dance session. Tan writes including a video. taken from his home.
Tan said he once called the police, who asked the group to turn down the music. “But the reduced volume was still very audible,” he said.
He also said he had written to the Health Promotion Committee to ask if dance activities were under their jurisdiction, but had yet to receive a reply.
Tan acknowledged the importance of maintaining a healthy lifestyle, but said such activities can be carried out “without disturbing the peace of the neighborhood.”
He suggested moving the dance session or doing it later in the day.
Netizens in the comments agreed with Tan, saying that such activity in the early hours of Saturday morning could indeed be disruptive.
