THE full extent of neighbours’ complaints about the privately rented ‘party houses’ in plush Canford Cliffs and Sandbanks were laid bare in Parliament yesterday.

Poole MP Robert Syms, who secured a Westminster Hall debate on the issue, reiterated that residents lives were being made a “misery” by the houses that - as previously reported in the Daily Echo - are being used for raves, stag and hen parties.

He outlined a catalogue of his constituents complaints, including: n Drunken revellers playing football in gardens at 3am.

• Prostitutes arriving at all hours.

• Blow up sex toys, visible to young children, displayed in broad daylight.

• Up to 50 revellers staying at houses with thumping bass music all night.

• Party-goers drunkenly climbing neighbours’ trees.

A number of properties, some worth millions of pounds, are being offered at weekends for around £750 a night.

Poole’s Deluxe Holiday Homes, whose portfolio includes houses in Canford Cliffs, Sandbanks, Branksome and Lilliput is renting out some of the homes.

Michelle King, of Deluxe Holiday Homes, said she would speak to the Echo after consulting her solicitor. Borough of Poole have acknowledged the issue and insist its officers are “exploring every avenue to deal with the matter effectively.”

Meanwhile, Mr Syms, speaking at Westminster Hall, explained: “Some of the websites have associated services – for instance, if you’re having a hen party you can rent a naked butler.

“One constituent arrived home one day with his young daughter, aged seven or eight, to find the house next door had blow-up dolls, bought from a sex shop, all the way around the veranda.

“He had to tiptoe over and ask them to take them down “Most of it is high spirits, but the reality is it is inappropriate for a residential area and spills over into activities that are very inappropriate indeed.

“Another of my constituents wrote to me telling me about the screaming, the shouting, prostitutes being delivered well into the night, loud music, bottles thrown into his garden. I hear stories of elderly people barricading themselves into the homes because of the noise.”

According to Mr Syms, one retired solicitor and his wife had even purchased a caravan so they could get out at weekends in order to sleep.

He added: “What we have seen in recent years is residential properties being used inappropriately as party houses. Branksome Park, Canford Cliffs and Penn Hill are strong residential areas which are lived in by, generally, a lot of professional people who have worked hard all their lives.”

 

• Six nuisance houses

Borough of Poole has received complaints from 16 residents in relation to noise nuisance from six houses in Canford Cliffs and Sandbanks since 2011, it has been confirmed.

Following council investigations, noise abatement notices have been severed on two properties.

Cllr Xena Dion, cabinet portfolio holder for the environment, said the behaviour of some of the visitors has been “unacceptable.”

She added: “The council has taken this mater very seriously and dedicated a significant amount of effort to resolve it.

“We have tremendous sympathy for the residents affected but as it is very unpredictable the powers available to us are currently limited.”

New Government regulations, set to come into force later this year under the Anti Social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014, could provide local authorities with another way a combating the problem, but the relevant sections of the act have yet to be commenced.

Cllr Dion said: “However, we are continuing to explore every avenue to deal with the matter effectively.

“We have visited on numerous occasions in the early hours of the morning to witness noise nuisance, and have installed digital noise recorders in the houses of some nearby residents in order to gain the necessary evidence required to take enforcement actions.”

Borough of Poole says it encourages residents affected by noise nuisance from such houses to report the matter at the time it is happening by telephoning the out-of-hours number of 0800 506050.

This just goes to show THAT MONEY DOES TALK. How many people in Charminster and Winton have to put up with this type of noise and anti social problems nearly every day of the week not just weekends. It has even got to a point where 8 families have been forced to move out in one road because the authorities are unable to stop the problem. The University is also powerless to make students behave, they don't want to be seen as kill joys and put other students coming to the town.
If the residents of Canford Cliffs would like to swap, I'm sure there would be many in this area who would like to get sleep in the week.
Now this has been brought to the attention of the government perhaps they can also look at the student problem not only in Bournemouth but all over the country.
With high speed internet students don't need to go away to Uni they could work from home and use conference calls for face to face meetings.

Proof that money does talk. For years now, many areas in and around Winton, and other parts of Bournemouth and Poole have been subjected to many residential homes being converted to HMOs to house students, sometimes upto 6 or more in each house. All week, most nights residents are subject to rowdy parties, noisy students, and much more, such as bins not being brought in off the roads, multiple cars parked and not used. The ist is never ending.

Many have complained only to receive verbal abuse from the students. Residents have also complained to the Environment Dept, Police and the University, to no avail, no where near what as already happened with the money folk. Residents are lucky if they get to a Councillor, let a lone have a Westminster Parliamentary debate.

Is it not time that the Winton Councillors, sought audiences with Tobias Ellwood and Conor Burns, and get them to organise a parliamentary debate on this matter of Anti Social Behaviour.

Did any of them actually talk to local people to resolve the situation let alone raise the matter anywhere in Westminster or Parliment? And why would anyone own a very expensive nice home and then rent it out for drunken parties, assuming the place might be trashed, £750.00 / night does not seem much of an income if you have to repair and tidy afterwards, are the people who own these places that hard up they have to do this to pay the morgage, and if thats what they are doing does their insurance and morgage companies know whats going on?

Honestly, this is a very quick job for anyone with money. get the name and address of the owner of the property from the land registry (£6, or £3 if you have an account).
Sue for damages for the nuisance of the noise and bad behaviour generally.
Easy peasy with all the forms and fees at justice.gov.uk,
It won't be defended as no one ever bothers to update the land registry with their contact details so if the houses are usually empty they won't get the forms.
When they don't pay register the judgement as a charge at the land registry, cheap as chips.
Then apply for the house to be sold.
Anyone who can afford to live in Canford Cliffs can afford these very straightforward legal processes.

That may be so and I agree that the local MP's have completely dodged the traveller issue in the past but a) this is a different issue altogether from the usual run of the mill noisey neighbours type of thing that needs nipping in the bud before it gets completely out of hand and b) it is dependent on where the flipping house is isn't it? They are not in places like Springbourne or Rossmore (I assume) because that is not where people want to stay and they don't have places big enough.

There is no conspiracy or favouritism here from what I can see.

Maybe they know them ;-)
They leave business cards in the gutters. Disgusting.

Thank god for that, I live there.

So people are complaining that its because they're rich they're are getting listened to.
Has anyone stopped to think that by the so called "rich ones" getting this change in the law, the other people of Bournemouth, Poole, Christchurch, Boscombe, Dorset, UK, British Isles will also benefit. As then their noisy party neighbours and houses will also fall under this new legislation so "they" the ones that people are having a nit pick at have done you a good turn.
