The 1066 Pianos shop in Fulbourn, Cambridge have recently installed a spray booth with a mechanical extraction system. In March 2021, they have started heavy spraying of what smells like cellulose paint which is accompanied by intolerable noise. The shop is surrounded by residential lanes and is not far from the village primary school.

Cellulose paint not only smells awful but is extremely toxic. Having completely banned the use of this paint for automobiles previously, the European Union recently allowed its use only for restoration of vintage cars.

Many neighbours are upset and very anxious at hearing the continuous and loud drone of the fans.
This is a very quiet residential location mainly inhabited by older people who have lived here for many many years, some of whom suffer from mental anxiety. A former worker from the ventilation industry estimates the background noise in this area to be no more than 30dBA. Clearly the noise from the extract system to the nearest garden, which is approx 20m away, is estimated to be 80+ dBA, and perhaps even higher. This is at least 50dBA above normal background noise and is totally unacceptable.

The nearby residents are families with young children and pensioners who love to tend to their own gardens as well as the communal green area right behind the premises. However, depending on the wind direction they are no longer able to step out on most days. The smell and constant noise is untenable and the potential hazardous affects of breathing the toxic air is just not acceptable.

The piano shop has scaled up its operations as it now supplies to giants like Harrods ( https://youtu.be/bihXG5ce7Js or Google "Edelweiss Pianos"). Such commercial scale is more suited for industrial sites which should not be permitted in the heart of a quiet residential village. 

Having directly approached the shop owner in vain and engaged Parish Council and the local councillor,  the poor elderly residents have been knocking door to door for signatures to help apply pressure on South Cambs.

Support us in securing their peace and safety.
