Warehouse noise being investigated

AN INDEPENDENT review is being carried out to look at noise levels coming from a huge warehouse near Crick, as neighbours continue to endure sleepless nights.

Andrew and Nicola Allman, who live with their children just metres from the newly-built Tesco grocery warehouse on the DIRFT development, have been battling for the last nine months to get the noise levels coming from the 800,000sq ft warehouse reduced.

Mr Allman has lived in his family home for 20 years. It used to sit in open countryside before DIRFT was built.

He said: “This has caused myself and my family almost nine months of noise and stress.”

A recent report by Bureau Veritas, specialist noise consultants, has shown that the warehouse noise levels are up to three times higher than anticipated before the development.

Daventry District Council said it is currently seeking independent expert acoustics advice.
