NEC ECC: Failure to commence work due to community problems

Starting date was defined as the date that the Contractor receives a fully signed copy of the contract. Access to site was scheduled within 2 weeks of the starting date. Site handover was conducted within 2 weeks of the starting date. However, the Contractor experienced community problems on site since the community raised issues that they were not included during the whole tendering and contract award process, thereby the Contractor could not start work on site. The Contractor issued an early warning to the PM, and the matter was closed 3 - 4 weeks later. Which Compesation event is this one?

It sounds like a clause 60.1(19) event has most likely happened.
