Noise Action Group: Ipswich Docks noise

with 3 comments

Ipswich Unemployed Action would like to introduce you to the Noise Abatement Group who are appealing for residents in Ipswich who have been kept awake at night due to noise coming from the docks.

The noise is said to be coming from a cement ship – I have personally been kept awake by the noise even though I live at least a good couple of miles from the docks.

Here are some tips on how to complain:

1. If the noise is happening outside normal office hours, phone up the emergency noise number on 433444. If the noise is happening in office hours the number is 433115.
2. Give your name and address and state how it is bothering you
3. State whether you will be willing to allow environment officers in the room where you are suffering the noise. Please note that they will not measure noise from your garden or another room. It usually takes ninety minutes from you complaining to them leaving your house.
4. Log every instance.
5. If the noise is still occurring wait for another four hours before complaining again

Over 30 residents have joined the Noise Abatement Group.

If you can’t sleep due to a high pitch noise all night, feel free to contact James at james@bridgeward.org.uk

The Southern Cement Ship is back – and how to complain

I just got this email:
I knew something was odd this morning as they were cleaning the quay side with their mechanical sweeper lorry. It might be a new one.
Anyway as I write 8.45 they are getting the Kovak into place. That means about 11 the ship will arrive and by 12 they should be pumping.

The Southern Cement meeting – It’s back on

Well the meeting was cancelled, and now I’ve been told by both the Evening Star and one of the councillors that the meeting between the council and the Noise Action Group is back on.
There will also be a meeting between Southern Cement and councillors.  Of course what would be best for both sides would be […]Related posts:

Southern Cement – the media take an interest

I got a call this afternoon from the Evening Star about the Southern Cement fiasco.  They’ve got wind of the council officers’ proposed climbdown and wanted to know what the Noise Action Group thought.  They actually sounded angry, I suppose they got a promise out of Steve Rock who saw fit to cancel the meeting […]Related posts:

Uniland SA: At least they’re showing some interest

I was going through my statistics today and noticed the search Ipswich Noise Abatement Group (this blog comes first).  I rarely take these things that seriously but I thought I’d find out who’s looking at this, from the web address 80.34.174.215, and what do you know, it’s owned by Telefonica de Espana.
Looking further it seems […]Related posts:

Southern Cement – more southern than you’d think

Sometimes it’s hardest to see what’s in front of your own nose. So hidden in plain view is a very important fact, Southern Cement- the people causing misery for all those people in the Hayes, in the Maidenhall Estate, on the Wherstead Road and in Chatsworth Crescent, is in fact the British subsidiary of Uniland […]Related posts:

The Cement Ship Shriek – What are Southern Cement playing at?

Southern Cement seem to be doing their best to keep you up at night.  On Tuesday night they were going at full pelt with that annoying and constant high pitched shriek guaranteed to keep people up as far as Chatsworth Crescent and Laurelhayes.  They then stopped yesterday during the day, only to start again around […]Related posts:

Does the Ipswich Port noise reach the Chantry Estate?

The evening star forums have a set of posts about what I think could be the noise from Southern Cement.  How many more people are suffering and thinking it’s just them?
If you are suffering then please contact me on james@bridgeward.org.uk and I will put you in touch with campaigners who need to find out just […]Related posts:

  1. Wouldn’t it be better to publish this on a specialised site?

    Though I hear the noise a lot louder, living closer to the docks! It’s a real pain.

You can hear the noise in chantry i live in jasmine close ip29hp,I phoned environment health about a month ago to complain but as it was just gone 1pm they could not send anyone round.If it gets that loud again i will phone to complain a bit sooner.Isn’t there anything the MP can do.there are lots of people in my close saying about it.So it is affecting more people than they realise.

  3. The noise from Ipswich port has started up again. It has been going on all night and seems to be amplified in the house. Is anyone else still hearing it? Useless council say that it is normal industrial noise and nothing that they can do about it. What a fraud, and they get a nice, safe, paid job for doing nothing!
