I live near a factory. It is Summer and I sleep with my window open, even in winter. There has always been noise from the factory but it seems to be getting worse with banging and clattering all through the night which wakes me constantly. Please could you advise me.
The law is the same with respect to your case as for any other with respect to statutory nuisance. You are entitled to keep your window open (especially during summer). Regular sleep disturbance is something that indicates that a problem may exist. If you are unable to contact the factory directly go to your environmental health department. However, part of the solution might involve you co-operating and accepting some responsibility in coming to a satisfactory resolution.
