* Hampton, 16 Oct: '20 incidents since July'

(21074) A resident has complained about multiple disturbances at a student property in Hampton Road, near the junction with Abbotsford Road, extending over several months.

In an email to UoB and others in mid-October the resident says: "I am writing to make the University of Bristol, the landlord, and Bristol City Council aware of repeated noise disturbance coming from students living next door at [xx] Hampton Road. I live with my partner and we have been disturbed over 20 times by the current tenants at this property since July 2021.

"I have spoken with the tenants on a number of occasions regarding noise and requested that they keep all noise contained to their property at all times, but particularly after 10pm.

"Each time I speak to them they apologise. However, their continued disregard for waking myself and my partner up repeatedly, along with other noise disturbances, demonstrates they do not care about their neighbours or community."

The resident goes on to mention noise incidents at other properties in Hampton Road that he has complained about on previous occasions (and which have been reported on this website), plus one in September which was not previously reported.

He says: "This is a total of 34 recorded disturbances since July 2021, which means we are being disturbed on average once every three nights. This is impacting my ability to sleep and my mental health. I get anxious that I will be woken up or that I will have to speak to students again to request they keep noise contained to their properties. I find it very difficult to get back to sleep after being disturbed. This is a serious problem caused by some students at the University of Bristol and needs to be taken seriously."
