Zouk's neighbours say noise, trash a 'nuisance'

Dance club's operations incompatible with residential area, says URA

Popular dance club Zouk has to leave its Jiak Kim Street premises as its presence has led to a noise and littering problem in an area shaping up to be a residential district, said the authorities.

Residents have been giving feedback on "the nuisance" caused by large numbers of young people gathering at the waterfront next to Zouk, an Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA) spokesman told The Straits Times yesterday.

They would consume alcohol into the wee hours, often leaving behind empty bottles and cans.

Zouk's operations are incompatible with the Robertson Quay area, which is likely to see more housing under a new Master Plan.
