Apologies for overnight disturbance for next 2 weeks

We are aware that a few residents have raised concerns about overnight generator noise from the Nicholas King Homes site by the Memorial Hall.

Nicholas King Homes apologise for any inconvenience.  The generator does need to be left on at the moment for health and safety reasons.  They are excavating an 8 metre deep hole for the pump tank but as the water table is only two meters below ground, if they turn off the pump overnight the hole fills up with water and slurry again by morning leaving men working in dangerous deep drainage situations. They waited for the cooler weather to begin these works, as they did not want to disturb people at night when residents had their windows open, believing that the noise of the generator would disturb neighbours less at this time of year.

Works on the excavation should be complete within 2 weeks and in the meantime they are adding extra insulation around the pump and the generator to ensure the noise is reduced as much as is physically possible.

Should any residents have any further queries, their site manager is happy for you to contact him on pitstone@nkhomes.com.
