Children bouncing balls

in Domestic noise

What rights do I have over a neighbours child bouncing a ball constantly from 3pm till 10pm every night? They’ve just bought a basketball net and our lives are now ruined! We’re now thinking of moving!

The situation you describe is something that can be dealt with by the local authority. However, I would suggest speaking to your neighbours first as this can often be resolved amicably before authorities need to intervene. I would suggest speaking to their parents initially whenever you next see them and explain the situation. If this is not possible you may contact the local authority who have powers to deal with nuisances or anti-social behaviour that is persistent or unreasonable (the length and duration of disturbance will be relevant so maintain a log).
