A house PARTY on Hull Road hosted by University of York students was the latest in a series of events to anger local residents.
The party, which involved around 50 people, was reported to the Environmental Protection Unit at City of York Council in the early hours of Sunday morning. The officer who attended the scene reported seeing “lots of people in the road milling around” causing “general disturbance.”
This comes at a time when both the University and YUSU are working to promote positive relations between students and local residents, after complaints from Badger Hill residents.
YUSU President, Rich Croker, said ‘“living as neighbours is about compromise”, adding that these incidents involve a small minority of students and are “never malicious”.
Over the weekend in which the party took place, City of York Council’s Noise Patrol received over twenty complaints, just one of which involved students.
