Those who think that a new restaurant near home is highly convenient may agree to the idea to built the restaurant neighbourhood. However, I strongly oppose the announce that a new restaurant is to be constructed near my home area according to the following reasons.
To begin with, a new restaurant raises noise around a residential area. The newly built restaurant collects new customer from around the town, resulting in raising a lot of chats of customers, or traffic noise around a restaurant. My previous apartment, for example, had some restaurant in the neighbourhood. Fortunately, this restaurant was so famous that people from around my town gathered at this restaurant. Sometimes, drunk customers enjoyed chatting with each other so loudly. Moreover, some customers started conflicts, which called police near the restaurant. Not only from the noise of customers, but also from the noise of traffic near the restaurant, I suffered at my life. To come to this restaurant, a lot of customers drive a car, which also irked the residents of our apartment. From 7:00 pm to 11:00 pm, cars always lined near the restaurant, which always exasperated me. This case clearly illustrated the noise arising from a restaurant imposes a heavy burden on the residents
In addition to this, a newly constructed restaurant raises negative outgrowth. The restaurant brings tremendous food loss, resulting in raising a huge amount of trashes around the residents. Moreover, thank a lot of food trash, many insects, or bags gathers near a restaurant. In near my previous apartment, I saw many cockroaches near the restaurant. My neighbour claimed that the rate of cockroaches he encountered skyrocketed more than the time before this restaurant was built. Clearly, the negative effect from the construction of a new restaurant outweighs on the positive effect of that.
It is true that the construction of a new restaurant neighbour is convenient for us, but we live in such a motorized society, and we easily access the restaurant area by using a car. There are no convincing reasons to build a new restaurant around our home, which brings many negative outgrowths.
According to the reasons I mentioned above, I definitely disagree with the idea to build a new restaurant around our resident area.Read more
