This is happening all across SE1. I live in Hatfields
and we get disturbed by the noise of people coming out of Isabella Street
. They urinate in the street, shout, leave broken beer glasses, and they've started doing it along Joan Street
too as they exit through the back doors of the restaurant / bars to have a cigarette break. And it's not just noisy bar-goers causing problems, we have problems with TFL/Southwark Station working after midnight some nights and a group of workers even putting up scaffolding at 9pm one night during the working week earlier in the summer. When I called Southwark Council
to complain I was told they wouldn't be able to log it as a problem as I didn't live in Southwark and would have to call Lambeth instead as that is where I live, despite the noise and work coming from Southwark and the workers saying they had approval from Southwark Council
to put up the scaffolding! Lambeth do not have an out of hours number to report such problems on. When I called Lambeth the next day to discuss, I was told that if it happens again then I should call the police.
