With four concerts between May and September, the people of Pech David have gone through hell this summer. A petition from residents has caused overflow.
If the end of confinement was a relaxation for many, it was less for the inhabitants of Pech David. “We had two major noise-related problems,” assures the vice-president of the neighborhood committee, who expresses his anger. The end of the confinement was for us the beginning of sleepless nights and stress: with electro music concerts installed on the hill of Pech David, two hundred meters from a hospital and residents, bringing together more than 3,000 people in a period of health crisis ”. He admits: “If these concerts were rather well framed with respect for schedules, on the other hand the 90 decibels shot the walls and windows of the apartments shaking.”
“Why not do these concerts in closed places like stadiums”, vice-president of the neighborhood committee of Pech David
Fortunately, following a petition from residents, relayed by the neighborhood committee, the City put an end to this hellish situation: “Several real estate investors have also sent a letter to the City informing it that tenants have left their accommodation because of noise “. Another problem related to noise, suffered by the neighborhood: “Always since the end of confinement, every weekend during the summer, young people have come to the parking lot of the Sordeho stadium in Pech David, to set the stage for boom boom” . Alerted the City and the prefecture became aware of the problem but again it is the petition of residents that put an end to the situation. “Yet it was enough to close the parking gate to settle things.” This person in charge repeats it: “it is unacceptable that a district suffers in this way for several months. It was necessary to act. The temporary suspension of these concerts decided by the City of Toulouse is therefore a good choice. Even though I love music ”. Worried about the coming summers, this vice-president suggests that these concerts take place in closed places such as stadiums, “that would make good sense”. Finally, another neighborhood subject to noise: the buildings located in the Bassin de l’Embouchure aux Amidonniers where there too electro music was heard too much this summer.
