Round-the-clock noise from BBC extractor fans is causing misery for residents in neighbouring White City Close, who also say their road is being used as a rat run for thieves and muggers.
The fans trundle for 24 hours per day and are driving some residents to distraction to the point where they are demanding the council start monitoring the problem. One resident even said she was moving because of it.
They are also being woken in the middle of the night by the corporation's prop teams setting up ahead of the day's filming.
Of even greater concern to some is that muggers, who regularly lie in wait for BBC staff carrying laptops, see White City Close as an escape route, only to find it is a dead end.
One neighbour, who only wanted to be known as Toni, said: "When they realise there's no escape they just dump what they've nicked in the road. I've seen branded BBC bags, I've even seen a postman's bag.
"Muggings around here are a real problem, I've heard that the cash point by Tesco Express is one of the worst in the borough.
"We need the council to put up a sign saying this is a dead end."
As for the noise, she said: "The fans are on all the time and they smell and the problem has been made worse since the trees were chopped down. After a while you just become immune to it."
Neighbour John said: "You can be woken up at 3am by the props – it's really quite thunderous, like a train going past.
"I've rung up a few times but they don't seem to grasp what it's like to live next door."
One blogger, Lindiwe Zulu, has reported the problem on the fixmystreet website, writing: "It's incredibly annoying and I haven't had a proper nights sleep since I moved in 5 months ago.
"I think it's appalling that a building like the BBC hasn't been monitored about sound pollution earlier.
"I hope this will be taken seriously and someone will resolve this matter. I need sleep!"
The BBC failed to return the Chronicle's enquiries in time for deadline.
A council spokeswoman said: "We have not received any complaints from residents about this, however officers did monitor the site last night (Tuesday February 2) but heard no noise. Residents experiencing noise problems can contact the council by calling 020 8753 1081 or 020 8748 8588 out of hours, or by emailing email@example.com."
