“In response to concerns about large parties and unlicensed music events in a number of Croydon parks and recreation areas we have set up a dedicated telephone number to aid residents to report these events.
The number is 020 8604 7347. It will be staffed from 4pm on Friday 31 July until 6am on Sunday 2nd August.
Please use it to report either an ongoing unlicensed music event or suspected preparations/set up for such an event. Please feel free to share this number with your networks.
We will review this approach next week to see whether it has improved our responsiveness to resident concerns and would welcome feedback from you on Monday.
If this route does prove effective, we will operate this reporting mechanism for weekends throughout August. It is our intention for this to be temporary measure to deal with a largely seasonal problem.
All other noise complaints should be reported via the normal route on 020 8726 6000 or if it is an emergency call 999.”
