We have generally made a real nuisance of ourselves to the authorities but it seems to be the only way to get noticed.
“2 all night licenced clubs on our doorsteps with patrons using our roads as giant carparks and waking us up at all hours every single weekend, using gardens as toilets, having sex in cars, doing drugs, boozing, fighting, littering……
Our local council has been totally useless in dealing with our ASB problems and it feels as though our complaints are disappearing into a black hole and that resident’s rights are secondary to those of the club-owners. No-one seems to be held accountable and we are going around in circles despite complaints to councillors and our MP.
We’ve called 101 many times to get proper logging. We have generally made a real nuisance of ourselves to the authorities but it seems to be the only way to get noticed.”
Nicky and her neighbours finally got licence reviews of the clubs after a shocking bank holiday in 2014 where they were tortured for three nights in a row!
It took another whole year and Nicky and another neighbour going to court to finally get the place closed down!
