► Chandos, 18 Jan: 'Woken by street noise'
Updated: Sep 19, 2020
(18053) Street noise by unidentified groups, early hours of 18 Jan.
A resident in Collingwood Road reports: "For the noise log, we were woken up twice last night at 1.30am and 2.30am ... both groups of people making noise on Chandos Road."
Comment: This incident report may lack detail, but that's often the case with street noise—we often don't know who's doing it, nor whether they are students. I'm nevertheless keen to receive more reports, just so we have a better idea of how often this sort of thing happens. It could eventually be relevant to discussions about policing. When analysing incident reports I will break these examples of "street noise" out into a separate category, so as not to obscure the trends with parties and other types of noise. AW
