Upsetting the locals I see. I completely understand the logic of doing sensitive and potentially dangerous demolition on a Sunday morning as it's a main shopping street and it will be much quieter in terms of pedestrians walking near to the site.
As for starting at 6am on Sunday morning, I think a letter-drop / public consultation exercise would have been a good idea to tell people that there would be some disturbance for one day to allow the demolition of the high walls next to the footpath. Not everyone would like it but at least people know what's going on.
