St Mary’s Church Chimes Resolution from Parish Councils

Here is the agreed resolution made by Ashwell Parish Council on Wednesday 2nd October 2013:-

Ashwell Parish Council understands that the clock noise exceeds the WHO guidelines, although we do not understand how this makes them a danger to public health.

If the District Council were to issue a Noise Abatement Notice showing that the quarterly chimes are illegal but the hourly clock strike is acceptable, we would not appeal such an order.. 

(5 for 2 against 1 abstention as i recall)
