I ask you this question as, since both the real estate and the construction company have gone bankrupt, we are checking which subjects we can retaliate before taking legal action that could prove to be of uncertain outcome.
I am writing to ask you what I can do, having already reported my situation to the local police three times, and written a letter to the local newspaper.
I live in a residential area of central Brescia, at the end of a street. In front of my house there is a farmhouse, whose owners, agricultural entrepreneurs, are responsible for unbearable noise pollution, even with closed windows (my house has double glazing), every hour of the day, every day (yes, even the Sunday. The owner is a workaholic, he has never taken a day off in his life). I stopped keeping the windows open for air circulation due to the noise.
What causes the noise is not only the traffic of agricultural vehicles, but also their stop (with the engine running for more than an hour), and the “sirens” such as those heard by the vehicles for road works. Well, it’s like having construction going on every hour of the day every day.
The dramatic thing in my opinion is that I am forced to listen to white noise with earphones every night, so as not to be woken at 7 am by these beasts. This leads me to assume an incorrect position during sleep, which has resulted in intense cervical and lumbar pain that does not leave me for a single minute of the day. I would like to specify that I am only 22 years old and I am a student, and I seem to be 80 for the physical pain I have. And I don’t have the money to try a lawsuit or to hire technicians at my expense. I find it ridiculous that for a health problem caused by a third party, I have to spend money to protect myself.
I am a 26 year old boy, I would like to ask you for information about the noise I have been subjected to for about a year.
I bought an apartment which is on the ground floor, exactly below it is the condominium boiler, the latter has caused me and continues to do so, a nervous breakdown, due to the noises it produces.
I went to the ARPA, but the latter told me that it cannot intervene as it is a matter between individuals, that is, between me and the condominium. I was advised to do a sound level survey, but the latter is, for my financial possibilities, not feasible. I would like to ask you about an answer that you have already given to a reader in a case similar to mine. The boiler in my condominium is turned on every day from 6 am to 9 am and then from 1 pm to 10.30 pm, is it to be considered a continuous cycle system? Really, in this case it must not exceed 25 decibels? Can you give me some advice?
I am writing to you because doing hundreds of searches on the internet you seem to me the best prepared on the subject. I really hope you can offer me an answer.
after years and sentences we managed to obtain the early closure of the premises under the condominium; first it closed at 02.00 at night making a hellish mess, then with the intervention of the ARPA and protest sheets on the balcony, we managed to get the court to close at 23.30 except on Fridays and Saturdays which closes at 00.30. Things have improved a lot since then, but the place has lost some customers. News of these days the manager has given the cancellation and will open a room in another location.
My question is this: the new manager will be able to apply the old timetable as the sentence is linked to the previous manager, or in the face of these new situations the place must at least be soundproofed since it has nothing to be a pub having been a shop?
I live in Genoa in the Pra ‘delegation, an area affected by the presence of a container port (VTE) with all the problems of related noises: ships docked in the port with motor-powered generators on, quay cranes, truck and crane buzzers, and about 5000 daily truck passes.
