Did anyone else get woken up at 6.30 am this morning by what sounded like the loudest ever alarm clock beeping on the Bankside 123 site?
It was so bad I got up to complain. It turned out to be connected with the delivery of a new piling machine (something to look forward to there then...).
According to the woman who called me back later they have to be delivered with a police escort very early in the morning. She apologised and said she was drafting a letter to residents to explain as they'll be repeating the process tomorrow and Friday. The council noise team weren't aware that they had permission to make noise out of hours either. They'd also closed Great Guildford street so I'd have been stuck if I needed to get my car out.
Earplugs at the ready for tomorrow I suppose.
