* Collingwood, 5 Dec: 'Woken at 4am'

(21092) Complaint about noise disturbance at a property in Collingwood Road in the early hours of 5 December 2021.

Resident wrote to UoB: "It’s now nearly 4am and we have just been woken up by our student neighbours. I went to speak to them for the second time and was told: “You live next to a student house, what do you expect. The party is nearly over.”

"They warned us about this party a couple of days prior to the party and obviously thought [that] gave them the entitlement to keep us awake all night. Unfortunately, we don’t have another house to go to. They offered us a bottle of wine and some chocolates, which we rejected. My husband told them clearly to stay away from the garden but they ignored our request.

"I went to speak to them at 12.40 and again asked them to stay away from the garden. They left but it did not last.

"Generally they have been well-behaved and reasonable but weekends are our opportunity to rest and sleep, and a warning about a party does not help us, unfortunately."
