Date and time Section Details Action taken
02 Oct 2017 8 (BkHall)

There is currently a crew of people moving items into the building and in front of Flat M15. I intially heard them after 8 on Sunday 1st October.

I was woken by loud voices, banging noises etc. at 00:50 am.

It is unacceptable that this is allowed at this time of the night.

All the activity is in front of my flat.


This is the first incident concerning noise and disturbance since 'EventRoom' took over the management and operation of the Banking Hall, as an events venue. The management office is dealing with this. [Update] The noise problem seems to have arisen when the film crew wanted to leave the building by the front door after it was closed at midnight. All concerned are reminded that this is an absolute rule, no exceptions are allowed. [More in due course if more details become available]
23 Sep 2017 413 The short term lets in unit 413 are becoming a problem. The noise – loud shouting and screaming, loud music and partying in the corridor area are causing intolerable disturbance late at night. Reported to security who attended to problem and noise abated for a short while but soon increased again.The registered owner has been requested to deal with this problem and the building management are investigating. [Update] The owner responded without delay authorising that these tenants be told they must leave if there were any further disturbance. This apartment is managed by Afribode and we are reviewing the way that these short-lets are managed. The visitor registration facilities on this web site are a step in the right direction.
21 Sep 2017 It worries me that the window cleaners walk on the 4th floor walkway roof. They do walk on the metal connection above the wooden beam and not on the plastic roof itself, but it is definitely not safe and they have been walking up and down there so often that the structure is most likely not so safe anymore. I have warned them several times. If they continue to use the roof, I suggest you order the company to install a safety line for the guys to clip into. It is quite a long drop if the roof collapses. The window cleaning contractor has been requested to ensure that cleaners do not work without safety lines.
30 Jan 2017 607 I had a disturbing incident on Friday 03 Feb, at approximately 16:45.
I was upstairs in my loft, when I heard a disturbance downstairs - to find a strange woman looking through my belongings. She had let herself in - as my door was open (to get a draught flowing through to alleviate the heat!)
When I confronted her she looked shocked- probably thought no one was home. I asked her what she was doing in the apartment but she couldn't give me any answer. I asked her to leave, and as soon as I looked outside she had already vanished.
I reported it to security, but the man on duty was not very helpful - I was hoping they'd look for her immediately as I gave a detailed description. I went to check with the security guard on duty after him, but he had no idea that I had reported this...
Description of intruder:
She is about 1.7m tall, very thin (emaciated), straight black hair tied up, Cape coloured, dark skin tone, lots of prominent (visible) South African prison-style tattoos- one across her back saying 'AMERICO' in all caps.
She was wearing pants, a tank top and a checked shirt tied around her waist.
My best guess is that she is a sex worker and was let in (but not escorted out) of the building. We have many more Air BnB tenants now, including the apartment next door to me (607) where she may have come from? [I have noticed other sex workers in the building on other occasions too- but they were escorted out]
Can we please warn tenants or let security know that guests MUST sign out too?
Or I can offer to do a sketch + description of her to be kept with security, so they won't let her in again?
The Management Office has things in hand - the incident was recorded in the book and security are already aware of the problems with this unit (607).
