Just wondering if anyone can help.
For over 2 weeks now the Council have been working outside my home replacing the footpath down the complete street...there was nothing wrong at all with the old one, so not sure why in the first place but by the by.
Anyway they start work between 8 and 8.20am every morning and the noise is really loud, cutting paving slabs with a chain saw, leaving tractor engine running, hammering etc etc.
No warning was ever given that they were starting this work (although they do maintain that a letter drop was done).
The land outside my house belongs to me as detailed in the house deeds but have been told that it is 'Adopted Highway' so the council can 'maintain' it when they see fit.
Now I understand 8-8.20am is probably the normal start time for this sort of works (they're often gone by 2.35-3.45ish).
The work was meant to be completed on Friday but noone worked Friday or Saturday. Today (obviously Sunday) I'm woken up at 6am by them starting work! I went out to ask if they were allowed to start work at this time and the workman was incredibly rude and said that this was the only time they could work in front of the shop and walked away!
Does anyone know where I can find info on whether any laws have been broken here or does anyone know the law themselves? I've been googling since 6 and don't think I'm using the right terminology.
Any help would be extremely great & thank you for reading this!
