Noise and crime stats released for summer Hyde Park concerts

Parks officers have released the following: there were only 24 noise complaints, including those to the Parks’ 0800 number and to WCC, fewer than last year.

Crime also reduced significantly this year, with the Metropolitan Police recording 31 incidents, down from 66 in 2014.

As ever, the complaints email address is: .

Alternately, during events, if you would prefer to speak to someone, please call 0800 567 7079.

The Parks have to find two thirds of their budget themselves, rather than getting it from government. Given that these figures arose from around 300,000 visitors over 11 days,  bringing significant income, they seem tolerable.  Let’s make sure they stay that way.
