Residents who live near the Community Centre on Forest Rise have expressed their concern about the evening use of the premises during the hot weather. Neighbours report having to close their windows because of the noise during the first hot spell of the summer 2013. The centre only has 5 parking spaces and advertises availability from 9am to 9pm Monday to Saturday or 7pm on Sundays and Bank Holidays.
Councillor Peter Batty approached the Borough Council’s Sheltered Housing Team last month with the concerns of residents. The council says that those local residents who have access to the council’s 24hr Control Centre via an alarm system in their properties should use the system if they have any concerns about anyone using the community centre. There are staff on call at all times to respond immediately.
“Until recently a community room was available to hire for private parties up until 9pm,” explained a spokesperson for Hinckley and Bosworth Borough Council. The council was unaware of the noise problem but undertook an immediate review of the booking restrictions for the Centre. It is now proposed that the Centre will only be available to hire up until 7pm and only then for meetings and young children’s parties (children of up to ten years). Alcohol is prohibited on site.
