Here is a response from email@example.com the Neighbourhood engagement manager. My email of complaint was acknowledged after three days and the response came after five days.
'Further to your complaint about music from the East Village Market, the following measures have been put in place.
The base (sic.) has been turned to the lowest possible level on both the speakers and the DJ decks. Also, a reduced volume is being set on the music from the DJ before 12 noon. In addition, musical acts will be asked to roam in the open spaces rather than below residential building before 12 noon.
The music extends for an hour after 4pm while the market breaks down and whilst residents and visitors are enjoying Victory Park, and the outdoor retail spaces along Victory Parade.'
So there you go. For a whole hour in the morning GLL are going to make sure the music is turned down.
I wonder if the people who dismantle the market asked their union to demand a live dj to accompany them or they would go on strike. Is this standard operating procedure now for market dismantling?
Would anybody happen to know who is paying for this market and the dj's etc? The hedgerow people who walk around advertise their services at £600 an hour. Add on the seagulls and the squirrels etc and the dj's this is becoming a very expensive market and I don't see many people buying from the stalls. I would hate to think that my rent money is being used to disturb my Sundays through the summer.
At least play some sonic youth dj Sophie I beg you.
