messageDawson Hill (noise control)
Posted by mary123 May 21, 10:31PM

Dawson Hill has become a hangout area for large groups, making lots of noise and playing music, really becoming a disturbance ,,they are on the hill all day and through the night, the hill and area has become a dumping ground for loads of rubbish,, does anyone know if area is patrolled and what can be done regarding noise control.?

Since Dawson Hill is Social Housing I would contact Southwark council.
most social housing estates have a designated estate warden/caretaker or they did on my mums one
Or I would imagine theres a residents association

Dawson Hill is a public area and not linked to Dawson Heights estate, it runs parallel along
My Addon Park and Dunstons Road

Never mind the noise. The amount of rubbish left there is a DISGRACE. Lots of people are using it and that is great but please please please take your rubbish home.

Large group, making noise at the moment, no doubt they will be there several hours yet, they can be heard through closed windows, have contacted the M.P, reported it to Southwark noise control they say the team are not going out in lockdown, reported to Police,. Let's see, basically large groups are partying on the hill everynight, playing loud music, I saw a worker fill 2 bags of rubbish left on the hill from people's overnight parties, any ideas who else to call to report this, would think, as the hill as nature reserve status it should have some kind of no drinking policy/ playing loud music??

The noise can't be avoided unfortunately as hours into early hours, making sleep and rest for nearby residents impossible, the rubbish left over on the hill is crazy,local residents of the area are going to the hill early doors to tidy and fill X2 refuge bags to help out Southwark council but I don't think it's helping the problem of this behaviour.

Totally agree Mary123, the behaviour does need to be tackled. I really feel for you if this is happening on your doorstep.

It certainly is...Police have been called and attended but they just give advice to the groups to keep noise down, we have tried to contact anyone involved in Dawson Hill Trust but no working contacts.. just pray the situation resolves..

Would the fact that the Police have attended and, in your own words, 'just give advice to the groups to keep the noise down', make you think that in fact people gathering in a public space to have a few drinks and enjoy themselves is perfectly legal and it may just be your intolerance and possibly a misguided opinion that you are entitled to perfect peace and quiet in a major urban area that is the problem here? There are many, many parts of the country where you will achieve this without needing to twitch your curtains, email the council or call the already overstretched Police force who are understandably wary of attending such scenes without contracting Coronavirus and taking it back to their families.

I am actually going to go to this spot and check to observe whether this 'crazy' rubbish that is apparently everywhere is fact or fiction. I suspect it is the latter and is a mere stick to beat the miscreants who dare to cause the slightest bit of commotion which you think is out of place, even though they are perfectly entitled to do so.

Still, i suppose you have the other 10 months of year when the weather is rubbish where you wont be disturbed. Then again, i get the feeling that even too many dog walkers in the deep mid winter may also not be to your pleasing.

Snakefilth, there are far too many independent posts here and across other channels to believe that the mess up there is a figment of Mary123's imagination. I also think that it's ridiculous to suggest that just because you live in London, you have the right to be anti-social and inconsiderate to others. May be these are the people who should move to the middle of the countryside so that the rest of us don't need to put up with them....
