Six noise complaints from residents of Rotorua's eastern suburbs were received last night.

The Rotorua Lakes Council received six noise complaints related to the eastside industrial area overnight.

They came from Blackmore Dr, Burton Pl, Larcy Rd, Lewis Rd, Tarawera Rd and Vaughan Rd.

The first complaint came in at 11.06pm and the last at 7.48am.

But, production at the Lumbercube mill had stopped for maintenance when council staff were monitoring noise in the area. The log yard was operating, but at a lower activity level.
