Incredibly loud street cleaning at 6 AM weekdays

Sent to Bristol City Council 3 minutes later

I live in a newly converted house, along with 7 other people. We are woken by street cleaners at least twice a week, who use incredibly loud jet washers to hose down the street at SIX AM.

This is not ok. It is a residential path, and this amount of noise should not be allowed before sociable hours. It is also the same alley as The Rummer hotel, so god knows how the poor residents there sleep.

There is no reason this needs to be done so regularly at this hour. Please move the shift later, as we are all highly disturbed by this noise. I understand it is done because it's light and nobody will be there, but nobody walks down the street in the afternoon after the markets closed, or even in the evening. Furthermore, if it needs to be done at this time, at least do it on Sunday.

This needs to be sorted ASAP, please. It is All Saints Lane, Bristol, BS1 1JH.

  • Still the council selfishly ignores us. I'm moving out because of this and feel so sorry for future tenants. It's twice a week or so now...
