  • I'm getting really fed up with this problem. Being awoken every night with this constant banging is not a pleasant experience and very wearing . The only time I've had a decent night's sleep is when we spent a week in the peak district two weeks ago. Please can we have this problem fixed.

  • Any update on when action will be taken to fix this? Loud noise disturbance throughout the day and night - every time a vehicle travels up Kipton Field. Six months later still being ignored!
