Noise from basketball and play area

It was brought to my attention that people playing basketball and ball in the football pitch near Rosebery House do so till after 11pm and that residents living nearby cannot sleep undisturbed because of the noise.

The play area falls within the by-laws as seen here:

because this play activity takes place with the consent of the Council, because the Residents Association put that basket ball hoop there with their consent, the situation becomes complicated.

Obviously the Parkview Neighbourhood Watch does not condone noises later than 8pm in the play area.

Any resident from Parkview having problems with noise from the football area at Rosebery House, please contact us, using our contact form.

We’ll be speaking to Residents’ Association, THH, Parkguard and SNT to get patrols in the area at night time.

There is a public meeting at the Glasshouse on 17. July 2021 at 5PM, which will be held by Parkview Neighbourhood Watch and the Tower Hamlets Neighbourhood Watch Association. Two Police Constables and two PCSO officers will be there to discuss any problems you may have.

Door functionality

After writing to councillors, MP and THH, to alert them to design features of the new doors, THH have now confirmed that they will speak with AD about options. Our local Member of Parliament Rushanara Ali has also confirmed she is supporting this issue.
