Tree surgeon working outside approved hours

There have been tree surgeons (SPC Landscaping) using chainsaws and an extremely loud chipper all the way along Crooks Place in the premises of St Stephensgate Medical Practice all weekend. There was no notification of these planned non-emergency works to affected residents and these extremely noisy professional works have been carried out inconsiderately outside permitted hours, causing a significant noise nuisance to residents in their homes. (Until after 3pm on Saturday and from 10am onwards on Sunday too.) The tree surgeons say they have been given permission to do this outside permitted hours (thus affecting residents in their homes all weekend) “because it’s quieter”. Obviously it isn’t quieter for residents, so why would the Council authorise residents being disturbed like this outside usual permitted hours for no good reason? These works could have been easily and safely carried out along a no-through-road cul de sac within permitted hours on normal working days, so this apparently Council-approved noise nuisance has ruined residents’ peace at a weekend for no good reason.
