noise, leave much rubbish behind?

place that may disturb the peace for a prolonged
period of time.

Q. I've seen lots of stuff regarding the outcome of
the old west pier, seemingly unresolved, but is anyone
aware of any planning permission that may obstruct our
wonderful sea views?

Q. When I mentioned to a friend I was thinking of
buying in Bedford Square, the first thing they said
