It's nearly 00:30 and people building the perimer inn have been at work for the last half an hour, there is a constant low pitched rumbling / humming noises and a high pitched screeching ever minute or so. Is any one else disturbed by them or is it just me?

As I'm sure you know, they are only allowed to work at certain hours and 12.30 am is way outside what they are allowed. Suggest you log a complaint with the police if it happens again. Shame the residents don't get a "good nights sleep"

Maybe its a an alarm gone off as there has gone off as they would not be working out of hours on a site in the middle of town !

If they really are working there during the night and it's disturbing you then you need to contact the planning department at LDC.

Planning responsibly was passed from LDC to SDNPA, who are not interested in the town, otherwise why did they approve the plans?

Maybe the plans were approved because they had ticked all the right boxes and Lewes needed a decent hotel?

I'd be very suprised if they were working on the hotel in the middle of the night. Whatever you think about these large developers they know their legislation better than anyone and wouldn't endorse such working hours. I suspect the noise was coming from somewhere else.

Tired Resident, you are right. They often work late at night/early morning there, which I'm assuming contravenes the rules. I'm not saying I know who to contact, just wanted to let you know you're not going mad!

...having said that, I'm guessing you've tried reporting it through LDC's noise complaint form?

If they are working at night, then call LDC, ask for the planning dept, give them specific times and complain.

Unfortunately I live alongside the train station so I can tell you that it was probably the heavy maintenance train chugging up and down each line at the station, the screeching definitely was.

does anyone who actually lives in Lewes.. actually work within the Premier Inn site?

Yes. Noise almost definitely coming from the Station. Often terrible screeching noises in the night (we live very near station). I really can't imagine Quora need to work late at night - it would contravene regulations and cost too much to get people working those hours. The development is pretty much on time, so why would they be working at 3.00 am?

Yes Pedant. Re read first post - 00.30 but my remarks still stand.

The screeching probably comes from the rails that the maintenance loco is, er maintaining. I remember how the Uckfield Snail used to screech on the tight radius on the viaduct into Lewes station . There is an extra rail on the tight radii that stops the wheels from riding up too far, but screeches in the process.

I live in Lewes and we are doing the dry lining work at the Premier Inn, we have two labourers from Lewes on site and three Apprentices that live in the Lewes District area and most our other tradesmen come from Sussex. The main contractor Jessops are a pleasure to work with and are a medium sized building contractor from Newark.
Like the main contractor, we are contractually bound by the hours of work restrictions set by Lewes District Council Planning department.
If you truly thought that people were working there on a Sunday night until 12.30am, I would suggest that perhaps you may have missed more than one night's sleep.
I spent last night in a Premier Inn in Dalston and it served a purpose and this one will serve a purpose for normal working people who need to use one in Lewes when it opens.
