Noise Management

Kisstory on the Common Festival are dedicated to ensuring compliance with the noise regulation that are set within our licence. To monitor noise levels on and offsite we employ a team of expert noise consultants to be on site for the duration of both live event days (Saturday 27th & Sunday 28th July) to monitor Db levels.

During the build period the event site is a working construction site and will have plant and machinery operating. We will endeavour to keep any disturbance from construction work and vehicle movements to an absolute minimum.

Traffic Management and Transport

A detailed traffic management plan has been prepared and agreed in conjunction with Lambeth Highways Department. Road closures and parking restrictions will be in place with resident’s access maintained on various streets in the vicinity and parking will also be prohibited at Streatham Common North and along Streatham Common South (Parkside).

The purpose of the road closures is to ensure minimal disruption to the road network around Streatham Common and those who regularly use it. The traffic management plan has been designed to help ensure a quicker dispersal of the audience at peak times and the restriction of unwanted vehicles using residential roads as a shortcut.

Parking Permits

If your road is planned to be closed or has parking restrictions you should have already received your resident’s Parking Permit. I you have not or require an additional permits please visit the Site Office at the Production Entrance to the festival site on Streatham Common.
