A reader offers this advice to Carol on how to deal with a noisy neighbour:

With regards to your correspondent and the noise issues, I had
the same problem. Please feel free to pass this all on to her.
Peter Gossman from the City of Cape Town was just lovely. 

came out a couple of times at 5.30am, but I just made him a cup of
tea and let him do his sound tests. 

I had reports done and looked up the legislation, and there was
a final warning letter to my noisy neighbour. It takes a while to get
anything done, but now I sleep like a baby.
My neighbour did it with malicious intent and I now have an
interim harassment order against him and the noise has stopped.
