They seem very eager. Are they Polish?

Surprisingly they're not polish. I know they only have a few weeks left to finish a big conversion, but I thought that was a bit early. It disturbed my beauty sleep.

You don't need beauty sleep of course.

But you do have two options. Either speak to the workmen onsite and tell them 8.00 am is the earliest they can start, (the best route imo), or phone the council.

In my experience, councils are very good at dealing with This Sort of Thing.

Its 8 o'clock, but by the time they have had a cup of tea, read the sun, and had a who can do the smelliest fart competiton that would be a ten o'clock start .

I used to work on a site where we had to do all our drilling before the nancy boys in the office turned up at 9 am, they didn't know, or care how difficult it was to predict where a hole had to be, way in advance of placing whatever it was that was going in it, in it, innit :moo:

Of course, we pushed it and pushed it, one little red faced fat guy ALWAYS came down to complain and he became very unpopular. Then, a few months later we were on another site a few miles away and he walked past.
Someone shouted to him "Ain't still too ******* noisy for you, is it?!"

Oh yes, that was me :D

When Thames Water were renewing the mains outside my flat they decided 7:30am on a Saturday morning was acceptable :( My missus went and complained and the workman said "I'm just doing what I'm told". I e-mailed Thames Water and complained - for the rest of the time they didn't even start before 9am :p

Another thing, they have put their scaffolding up over the wall so that it is on my garden. They didn't ask - thought that was a bit cheeky.

Mum is on chatting terms so I will send her round there tomorrow if they start early!!

For noise compliants - there'll be an out of hours number.

Dani - take photos of the scaffolding and make sure they reinstate any damage.

Get any cheeky jobs you need doing in the house for nothing on account of the above.

Wish I could ring the council about next doors talking and bad ass drum and bass at 3am :( Its not loud but thuds through the wall.

I'm too scared to complain in case he stabs me (generalisation at its best) Although when I locked myself out he did offer me a quid to use in the phone box, so he seemed nice.

Scaffolding is still there. It is making our flat very dark.

There is no sign with the name and number of the scaffolders, the painters are now in and say they don't know who the scaffolders are.

Mum called the council who said it wasn't anything to do with them and that she should call environmental health. She called them and they said it was nothing to do with them, she should call the police!!!! She called the police who said it was nothing to do with them unless the builders were being threatening towards her!!

We have given up and will just hope neither of us get injured by it!!

Scaffold is normally colour coded, keep an eye out for the same colours around town until you see the same with a signboard. Failing that, ask a small local firm to strike it for free saying they can keep the gear

For a start The Scaffolding is required by law to be inspected every 7 Days.
Phone up EHO again it IS their responsibility to enforce this. They are also required to take action if there is a danger/risk to the Public.

In my experience though a lot of these EHO's tend to be 'oh look Ive got a piece of paper so I know it all' types who havent got a scooby when it comes to the actual practical side of things

If they wont help or refuse to, go on the HSE Website and drop them (EHO) in it :)

I had to stop to go to the toilet at 0845 (It was number ones or I would have just carried on).
