► Ashgrove, Jan 25: 'Noisy party'

Updated: Sep 18, 2020

(19054) Two residents have complained about disturbance from a student party in Ashgrove Road on Sat/Sun, January 25/26, 2020.

An Ashgrove resident wrote to UoB: "The party started in the late hours of the afternoon on Saturday ... finishing at 2am on Sunday. We live in the house on the opposite side of the road.

"Music was so loud that I had visit the property on 2 occasions and ask for the music to be turned down. On both occasions students turned the music down for short period of time before raising the volume back up again.

"Multiple times during the night, party-goers went outside smoking, drinking alcohol and shouting loudly."

A Hampton Road resident wrote: "From late evening on Saturday until around 1-45am on Sunday there was noise from beat music, coupled with loud voices and shouting of people gathered outside the property, or moving to and from the property through Hampton Park.

"For perhaps half an hour in the later stages, this was supplemented by the sound of an alarm (I'm guessing a fire alarm), which seemed to go off and then on again multiple times.

"My house is about 100 yards away, so for me the most notable feature was the sporadic shouting, which was loudest when groups began to leave at around 1-30am."
