Dear Mr Nix,
I am adding my voice to the concerns already raised by neighbours in Great
Eastern Street, regarding Spencer's proposed work schedule over Christmas.
This year has been taxing for us all on many levels. The Christmas period

planned months in advance to be sure of low train numbers and safety on the
site. That we are only hearing about this now, 22 days before the work will
begin, is both injurious and insulting on the part of the contractors and their
We ask the council to discuss the potential for mitigation of this construction
work with the contractors and their clients. Today we were forced to accept the
prior approval of the train wash. The least the contractors and their clients
can do is act gracefully and allow us to have a quiet Christmas.
