    so we've just been told at 6pm that workers need to dig up our driveway because our neighbour opposite hasn't got hot water and it's to do with a pipe under our drive. we've had to move all our cars onto the road and they've said it could be several days worth of work. they're planning on working through the whole night and I just think it's ridiculous??? they're literally drilling right outside my room and I have work at 3am. are there not rules that say they can't do this at night??

    I could be totally wrong, but I think for essential and more urgent works the rules are different. You'll be best off contacting your local council and asking about the rules specific to your area and situation
