I live towards the end of a road that connects with another road.
I have this ** in my neighbourhood who doesn't live on my road but at the crossroads of the other road ( four houses away ). His garden faces my garden. He moved in two years ago with his family and quite regularly, he listens to radio music on weekends from midday to 9PM. He also does this on public holidays.
I keep my windows closed ( obviously ) but can still hear the music lightly.
Once a month, he also gets his mates round and then they get drunk and scream / yell / sing / play drums up until 3AM. Last year, he also bought a cockerel and that kept crowing regularly throughout the day. It took me weeks to figure out who was actually responsible ( using your ears to track direction of sound is not at all easy ). He had it for a meal and then it stopped.
He has also built a second conservatory and this has a chimney. When he cooks ( most likely using wood ) , you can see smoke and then I have to again close my windows to keep out the smell.
I rung the council out of hours noise team on multiple occassions and they always want to come to my house to assess the noise and then take action. I object to them coming to my house for this farce and each time they send off a warning letter to the **'s house. I asked them why they couldn't just drive past the **'s house and see for themselves. Apparently, they don't operate that way!
I have sent a few anonymous recorded letters to the ** making him aware of the music and our law and related fines.
Nothing has improved and this continues and I am at my wit's end. I don't want to talk to the ** as I believe it will be useless and all we'll do is have a swearing competition.
Has anyone experienced the same and what success have you had ?
