Rosie Cooper Spat With Student Landlord

It seems that Rosie Cooper MP has been drawn into a dispute about student noise from student lettings in Ormskirk. She wrote “I am very concerned that not only has this student landlord refused to soundproof his property or properties adequately, but he has also not participated in any attempts I have made to resolve this for my constituent”.

Rosie goes on “I have sought intervention from the Borough Council and from the Ministry of Housing, but ultimately without the participation of this landlord there can be no progress”.

It sounds like statutory nuisance. WLBC has a duty to investigate any statutory nuisance. If the council decides someone is causing a statutory noise nuisance they must issue a noise abatement order. This tells the person what they must do to stop making a noise nuisance or else face further legal action. If someone breaks an abatement order about noise from their home, they can be fined up to £5,000.

So perhaps this is just backsliding from WLBC, the council that thrives on the “student economy” we hear so much about.

At Parkinson Student Lettings we look to take away one of the stresses of university life – finding housing, by providing prime location accommodation close to campus. All our properties are within a ten minute walk to Edge Hill.

“Parkinson Student Lettings have been letting properties to students in Ormskirk for over 25 years. We only let to students, so we understand your needs and have developed our properties to give you value and peace of mind during your time here.

“We have 5 properties in Ormskirk all situated near to Edge Hill University itself with a total number of 30 rooms to let. Please take a look at our Ormskirk student properties on offer and don’t hesitate to contact us for further information”.

Seems like all the stress taken from students is passed on to neighbours. “Peace of mind”?

What’s the Edge Hill University view?

When has the EHU ever used these teeth?
