Can my neighbour get in trouble for blocking my driveway with their construction truck?
Can My neighbour get in trouble for blocking my driveway (that I don’t use) with their huge construction truck that’s causing a lot of noise just outside my window ? I really don’t like my neighbour, because hes not considerate of other residents and does what’s good for him. My neighbours are having very loud construction that’s ongoing for months. It’s already super annoying because it affects our ability to enjoy daily live and sometimes disturbing our sleep when they start drilling first thing the morning, also few times they were working outside permitted hours and already reported for that.

NQ. Civil matter unless they are parked where there is a dropped kerb which is a ticketable offence

NQ only time you can act is if your car is on your driveway and been blocked in. Otherwise there isn't anything you can do.

Nq any obstructions come under the protection of freedoms act so they cannot block you in. Any noise from construction comes under environmental health or if the construction is under planning permission then check the plans as there maybe restricted times that construction can take place.
