Concerns over noise nuisance
RESIDENTS of Merton Gardens in Horfield are concerned that despite their complaints about experiencing regular instances of noise and anti-social behaviour from an industrial unit sited near to their properties in Horfield, no action has been taken yet.
Some people believe that the industrial unit is being illegally lived in, illegally extended and converted into a commune without planning permission. Bishopston Councillor Tom Brook is looking into the matter (for further details see his column, p18).
An Ashley Down Road resident said: “Building work and anti-social behaviour is continuing at all hours of the day and into the early hours of the morning (2am - 3am most nights). There are numerous Covid 19 lockdown infringements, with random groups of people attending the site both day and night.
“This is causing a huge amount of nuisance for the neighbourhood and we are regularly having to get the police to attend the site. It is being built without any health and safety and is left in a very dangerous state.”
Bristol City Council has been approached for comment.
