► Roslyn, 14 Mar: 'Blatant disregard'

Updated: Sep 18, 2020

(18073) Loud pre-drinks gathering of 40-50 students at house on east side of Roslyn Road until after 11pm on Thursday, 14 March 2019. Much noise as students left in taxis.

A resident has complained to the University of Bristol about this disturbance, which she says is not the first at the house. "The music wasn’t particularly loud but the sheer volume of people within the property created a lot of noise all evening—they had all their windows open."

Her husband and two neighbours complained at about 11pm, and the windows were closed, but there was a lot more noise when the group left. "When the 40-50 or so students spilled out of the house at between 11.30pm-11.45pm to wait for numerous Uber taxis, the noise was absolutely horrendous. Screaming, shouting, singing at very, very loud levels—this went on for at least 20 mins by the time all the Ubers had arrived. I also noticed some people downing alcohol from plastic bottles and throwing them into the road."

This resident has recently complained about other noise disturbances in Roslyn Road. She writes that the latest event is "just another example of the sheer and blatant disregard that the Bristol university students have for their fellow residents. They treat our street as their playground, as though they have a right to make noise and party."
