There was some kind of an all-night party up Trenders Avenue in Rawreth last night. We have received the following email from a resident:
As explained by phone we are having noise problems starting last night at about 9.00pm and still going today at 10.30pm. The source is the caravan site opposite the football pitches where there is an out door party playing continuous dance music on a non domestic sound system. It can be heard in Rawreth Lane and has prevented any chance of sleep.
I phoned RDC this morning about 7.00am when there was no sign of winding down, was directed to an emergency line where I left a message which was not answered until 8.06. Apparently RDC do not have any cover for this type of incident at week ends at all.
In the mean time I had called the police who attended, were pushed back by closing the gate by a number of hefty men but then made their enquiries.
The police advised me that they had been told that this was a private party, previously arranged, the organisers had advised all the neighbours in Trender?s Avenue, but would lower the noise level 2 notches, people were now leaving and a van that had just arrived would leave within an hour.
Later when there was no lowering of noise levels during a further call to the police I was advised that the party was now going on to the afternoon and they could do nothing about it, that I should report the matter to RDC.
Please can you advise how we can get RDC to assess the noise levels from this site at weekends should this become a recurring problem. The duration and noise levels are totally unreasonable.
Now, saying that the noise could be heard in Rawreth Lane is an understatement. We’ve since had a complaint from someone in Norman Crescent, complaining that the noise kept them awake. .THAT’S OVER A MILE AWAY! The booming sound could also be heard, faintly, in London Road.
Obviously we are going to take this matter up with the District Council. If you were disturbed as well, please leave a comment below and say which road you live in.
UPDATE AT 2:30 PM: We understand that the music is still going on and that the police have possibly had 200 phone calls….
