► Arlington Villas, May 24: 'Unable to sleep'

Updated: Sep 18, 2020

(19072) A resident has complained about noise from "a small party" at a student flat in Arlington Villas on the weekend of May 23-24, 2020.

In a letter to the managing agents, she says:

"As you can imagine when lockdown began all went very quiet with most of your tenants on the street heading to their parents' homes, but for some reason, despite no change to restrictions on going to second homes, a load of them have returned. Not only have they returned but they are enjoying the freedoms of no uni to attend to enjoy themselves. Whilst I have no issue with people making the best of this situation, I am getting fairly annoyed that for the second [weekend] in a row I'm unable to get to sleep as it sounds like they're having a small party (there is certainly more than a single flat of 4 people that I can hear). This follows an afternoon of loud drum and bass music that could be heard around the street, making it impossible for me to relax in my garden."

Her complaint was copied to UoB.

The same property was the subject of a complaint in February (19067).
