Canford Cliffs residents say their lives are being made miserable by noisy stag and hen weekend houses

'Noisy stag and hen party houses are making our lives miserable'

TURN IT DOWN: Canford Cliffs Avenue in Poole

'CAUSING A NUISANCE' John Sprackling

PRESSING ISSUE: Poole MP Robert Syms

COMPLICATED ISSUE: Xena Dion

STRESSED residents of upmarket Canford Cliffs say their lives are being made miserable by boozy stag and hen weekend ‘party houses’.

Around 30 aggrieved neighbours attended a meeting to brief Poole MP Robert Syms on the problem, which they say involves the private letting of houses for up to £750 a night purely for party weekends.

Neighbours complain of being kept awake by loud music all night, after stag and hen parties make their way back from Bournemouth’s nightclubs.

Roads that have been raised as concerns include Canford Cliff Avenue, Brownsea View Avenue and Burton Road.

Branksome Park, Canford Cliffs and District Residents Association chairman John Sprackling said: “They are causing a tremendous nuisance to neighbours and we are seeking a remedy to stop this happening. The neighbours are mainly retired people.”

Meanwhile, Borough of Poole ward councillors Xena Dion and May Haines have also pledged to ensure every action is taken against those responsible for letting out the houses.

Cllr Haines said: “Nobody objects to people having an occasional party or celebration in their own home.

“But residents who live around these houses have to suffer interminable disturbance from parties that go on every weekend and often last through the night.

“Sometimes they only start in the early hours when revellers return from local nightclubs and continue partying. It is making their lives totally miserable.”

Poole MP Robert Syms has agreed to press the government on tightening relevant laws and regulations to combat the problem.

Cllr Dion said: “Unfortunately it is not simply a case of calling the council and getting it stopped.

“The only way legal action can be taken is through the courts, and the courts demand sufficient, factual evidence to satisfy them that the owners of the houses are intentionally letting out their house for party weekends. As with all legal issues, it is complicated and there are loopholes that owners have argued against and, in some cases, won.”

Cllr Dion advises neighbours report noisy parties to the council as they are happening, as officers need to record events firsthand.

  •  Dorset Police Commissioner Martyn Underhill has been asked to speak on the issue at the residents’ association AGM, April 26, 10.30am, Canford Cliffs village hall.

Canford Cliffs - used to be a nice, quiet, prime and proper village. Many years back now I'm afraid. State of the country? Or the attitude of the city "slick" and his "easy pickin' posse"! Just strange why a certain RC went bust and resorted to theft and fraud - according to reports of course.

They should moan and anyone who has noisy neighbours should complain. Obviously you have students near by who cause problems but sort it out with the council and join the other "moaners" to get something done.

The usual bitter and jealous comments on here I see, happens whenever Sandbanks or Canford Cliffs is mentioned.

These stories feature in the Echo quite a lot right across Poole and Bournemouth, it's nothing to do with favouritism, in this case they've bothered to get their local councillor involved and made sure the house in question gets some bad press, this will hopefully prompt the owner to jump in and sort things out.

Well done to the Residents of Candford Cliffs for the pro-active nature in dealing with noisy neighbours, maybe others across the boroughs can learn from this and do the same.

A lot is being done by residents across Bournemouth to tackle noise problems. I really do sympathise with these people in Canford Cliffs, it is not on at all that they should be disturbed. I can understand why people would feel upset that this made headlines in the local rag though, this kind of nuisance is so bad in areas of Bournemouth and is a long standing and persistent problem. I have attended many meetings, written many letters and made many phone calls on the subject and I know lots of residents have been proactive. The problem is that whilst you can hold a household accountable (eventually after enough evidence has been amassed) The tenants then move on and are replaced the whole problem repeats. The landlords is never at risk of loosing the right to let the property irrespective of the number of problems associated with that property. The council has their hands tied. New powers allow the council to restrict the change use of a property when being sold but not return a property to a family home only if it is a repeat nuisance offender as an HMO. New laws are desperately needed. Lets pull together not apart....

A quick look at the BBC website shows a different rental of only £500 per night, through a local Agency. It would appear to be cheaper to rent via them than any other way. Also, they (the BBC) have taken the trouble to contact the Agency concerned to obtain a comment. In their defence, they say that many of their rentals go to more mature people and that they would welcome comments from locals that are affected as, ultimately, it affects their business if things get too out of hand.

The BBC needs to update their figures on this one. The hell-hole house being rented out by this Agency behind our road & garden(and we are not in Canford Cliffs or Sandbanks) is now charging £1250 a night - minimum 2 nights throughout the summer. There has been so much written about the noise and abuse suffered, I won't even start here.
Click on the link below and open up 'Prices' to see what really is being charged. The misleading advert says 'Live the Dream in Sandbanks'. I reiterate, this house is in Lower Parkstone, in a quiet residential/retired road. The Agents /Press may like to give the impression that it's in Sandbanks or Canford Cliffs, thus upsetting people in other areas, who feel they have suffered the same misery but gone unnoticed. We are normal people here who have just decided 'enough is enough' so please join and support us, not condemn us for being perceived as posh or whatever. We are nice ordinary people and would welcome combined support. Lets not turn on each other. United we stand, divided we fall.

My garden backs onto this house and it is virtually wall-to-wall Stag and Hen parties with up to 30 drunk people screaming and shouting outside until 6am.

So instead of working against each other get together and discuss your shared problem be it student houses or party houses. Everyone has a right to be able to sleep/relax in their home. It's not the time to use your energy to say 'these people deserve it' it or ' our problem is worse than yours'

Use your energy to solve the problem, just because our country is run using an outdated public slagging match/debating house it doesn't mean we have to lower ourselves to that. Work together meet the people you think are 'not your type' and you will find you are all humans and can you work together.

We clearly need a new law as common decency and respect for others is an alien concept to some people, particularly those who see money as their God.
People do these things because they can, we simply let them get away with it.

I am sure that collectively there are things you can do to pressure on local MPs and councillors.

With the occupancy levels involved with these properties I would have thought that the usual fire regulations would come into play. They certainly apply to B&Bs and holiday lets above a certain size so I would assume these properties are also covered.
Alternatively look up the owner of the property on the Land Registry website and make sure they are aware of your concerns. If they live locally wake them up when the problem occurs. If not, as is probably the case, pay them a late nght visit to explain why they need to do something about the problem. If it is a company that wons the property then check home addresses of directors etc on Companies House website.
The local councils need to make sure staff can attend and shut down these parties when there is a nuisance. Currently they try to avoid their responsibilities in this area and need to take some action.

Ridiculous, when I want to book friends into a hotel, I have to double check the room will not be disturbed by hen or stag parties, and even then they can not guarantee this.

I remember not long ago in a local 4* a group of drunken fully clothed revellers complete with the false boobs splashed in the pool. Yuk.

Yes, the fault lies with youths, their parent, their education ... But we should not have to put up with it.

Delux Homes seems to be one of the better agents around! For the person who lives right next door I advise you to get a cockerel ;-)

It is exactly what Bournemouth is known for, for those from outside with readdies to throw about.

Bournemouth. Fast becoming the Bridlington of the South. I remember when it was a pleasant place.
I don't see the problem. Drunken parties-for-pay seems to be greater Bournemouth choice. It is exactly what Bournemouth is known for, for those from outside with readdies to throw about. Take heart. Bournemouth is not a place for those seeking ladies of the night. They are too busy getting sozzled in hen nights. Bournemouth. Fast becoming the Bridlington of the South.

If the owners of these houses are renting them out via an agency as advertised, then they are clearly operating a business from a residential property, which would require planning permission/change of use from the Local Authority. The council has more powers than Cllr Dion wishes to imply-it is the will to implement them that is the key.

The usual bitter and jealous comments on here I see, happens whenever Sandbanks or Canford Cliffs is mentioned.

These stories feature in the Echo quite a lot right across Poole and Bournemouth, it's nothing to do with favouritism, in this case they've bothered to get their local councillor involved and made sure the house in question gets some bad press, this will hopefully prompt the owner to jump in and sort things out.

Well done to the Residents of Candford Cliffs for the pro-active nature in dealing with noisy neighbours, maybe others across the boroughs can learn from this and do the same.
Bitter and jealous - I think not! You sound as though you are the type of 'not in my back yard' type that thinks they are better than everyone else. The trouble with the residents of Sandbanks and Canford Cliffs is that they don't care when anyone else has problems with noisy neighbours etc., or a Tesco store being built in someone elses vicinity but if it's in theirs they go running to the papers or anyone else that will listen! They don't agree with everyone is equal after all their 5hit doesn't stink!

Canford Cliffs is a place where people have nothing to do except count their money. If they took a bit more interest in their community they wouldn't get targeted by these types of businesses. In a proper respectable village people speak to their neighbours and join community groups to get to know them.

The residents of sandbanks and canford cliffs don't care when someone else has problems with noisy neighbours or a tesco being built?

Well why should they, just the same as a lot of people posting on here don't care about the noisy neighbours in this story and just come on here to gloat.

Just in the same way when Tesco opened in Sandbanks the residents had a moan but I bet they all use it now, the same will happen in Kinson, we're all the same really.


The people of Sandbanks and Canford Cliffs have the right to be concerned about what goes on in their area as the rest of us do in our own, the question is are they motivated enough to do anything about it?

The local residents involved in this don't like something so they've got together and done something about it, they aren't suggesting the party houses should be set up somewhere else, they simply want the noise to stop, that's the only action they are pushing for.

It is about time that we took control of a number of situations that Bournemouth has been sleep walking into.
The exponential growth of the two universities in our town is NOT ALL good news. They only provide housing for a tiny fraction of their students meaning that many areas are simply saturated with students and the problems that come with them.
Then we have a town centre that is simply not welcoming of an evening if you simply want a chilled night out. Key areas are out of control with drunk youths.
We seemed focused on dragging people here from afar to run around like idiots at night or litter the beaches in the day. If the town was functioning better, I am sure local people would be going out more often and spending more money enjoying ourselves on local businesses.
Where is the vision? This extends beyond a bus hub or a new hotel, it is about the place we want to live in.

Why don't you drive down Canford Cliffs Ave before shouting your mouth off? First of all you will need to locate it, so try Lower Parkstone NOT Canford Cliffs. Then report back on how many people you see there 'counting their money' . The only one I have seen recently is the absent , never-lived-in-the -road owner of the Party/Rave house. You may also be surprised to find that it is a community - Big Time. That's why we love it and why we can organise effective action. That doesn't happen unless you talk to your neighbour. Engage brain before opening mouth!

How on earth can a four-bedroom house be described as being able to sleep up to 20 people? Just shoving in a few sofa beds doesn't really count IMHO, otherwise any house could be made to sleep as many people as you want.

Exactly, and it advertises this openly in full view of The Council. Do you think it attracts higher Rates to match it's own higher rates?
