Hi All

Alarms going off in Shad Thames are becoming a real nuisance.

I live down by Butlers Wharf where we have a commercial alarm going off all the time. It is going off now at 01 40 am and this is the second time it has gone off tonight.

Does anyone know who is responsible for this alarm and is anyone else suffering from this nuisance?

Hi Spice

I am in Shad Thames too and yes, alarms seem to go off all the time. Mostly I ignore them.

The police will have a list of key holders who can deactivate the alarm. This is a requirement by Southwark Council. You can read about that here.

The solution for your is simple - call the Southwark Noise and Nuisance Team - they can deal with nuisance alarms. Details here.

My experience of Southwark "Noise Team" is that they insist that by law you have to put your TV on to drown it out!

It would be hilarious if our taxes WEREN'T having to pay for this tosh.
