As a resident of Bitterne Park for 65 years, I have noticed in the past few years a noticeable increase in the use of ' emergency vehicles ' using their sirens regularly from early morning till around 11pm all day and everyday. Peak times are the worst. The loud sirens can be heard all along St. Deny's Road across Cobden Bridge and through the Triangle up to Cobden Avenue and beyond, also visa versa. I just wanted to let the new residents of the ' Boathouse ' know what to expect once they move in. I obviously appreciate that someone somewhere needs urgent help but my comments only relate to the noise issue. Does anyone else agree with me? Regards Paul.
