A neighbour (3 doors up the road, not next door) is apparently a miserable @!##. We got on well before last week.
He doesn't like the renderers starting early, scraping back the render. The earliest being 7am, and this is a 1 week long job.
No power tools involved (in the morning anyway, which is the issue). Tomorrow (thurs morn, 23/03 being the last day.
The stuff is sprayed on last thing in the afternoon, and has to be hand scraped flat whilst green, before hard, ie before 9am.
All the Govt websites say that 11pm-7am is quiet time, Harrogate Borough Council say 8am-6pm. the say work "should" be in the hours 8am-6pm. Interesting the word "should", not "must".
There is very little clarity in what is actually Law, they can stick a letter about noise abatement through my letter box, but what takes precedent, the 7am start or 8am start? There is no restrictions mentioned in the planning permission that I can find.
I am aware they can put a notice on me to stop all works, but that wont happen before I've finished the job (we're at 2nd fix).
The guy started braying on the door of the house we're stopping in, and started shouting at me, was unprepared to listen, just carried on shouting. Talking with him is not an option. he is usually up by 7am anyway!
EDIT I used the word G1tt. The language moderator is obviously set to "sensitive" lol.
