messageDemolition of the old PO sorting office on Silvester/Pellatt Roads
Posted by Pootle March 24, 11:40AM

Demolition at the old PO site on Silvester/Pellatt Roads seems to be carrying on, while neighbours are stuck at home, many of us NHS staff on shifts and most trying to home school. The noise, vibration and dust is unbearable. The builders are all huddled together during breaks, too, and one has developed a cough in the past few days. The work is clearly nonessential, as they are building a block of flats and 3 town houses. Apart from the obvious public health concerns, I am interested to find out how far is the noise travelling - are other people locally finding it a nuisance? Thanks.

Can you take a picture of the builders huddled together to support your argument?

What would that achieve?

Everything mentioned is speculative, back it up with evidence (such as photos) and you're more likely to get a better outcome.

Well, better than just letting off steam on the forum.

Still not clear on the objective though, what are we trying to prove?

The point of my original post was about the noise, which we are monitoring. Neighbours are in lockdown at home. There doesn't seem to be any good public health reason for the building work to continue.

It certainly isn't essential. Do we know who is funding the project?

I see you've added re. the huddled builders "and one has developed a cough in the past few days." to your original post.

As noise is your issue "The point of my original post was about the noise" perhaps speak to the noise people at the council. I'm not sure they can deal with the noise of coughs though.

Most of these builders travel into this area from outside on public transport and the ones that are fixing up the house next to me do NOT stay apart- I'm going to photograph them but who to report it to?

The site is now shut, because the builders are symptomatic and self-isolating.
