I usually take the path of least resistance but I am getting into a dispute with one of our neighbours. They are building an extension which they claim has planning permission but the council has no record of this. I am inclined to raise a complaint with the council as it could impact on the value of our property and I do not like being overlooked. They are now complaining about the noise of our dogs. Our first such complaint in 10 years. Dogs do bark but they are indoors most of the day with me and only bark to make their presence known when outside. They have a young family, they are on higher ground and are very noisy when playing games or entertaining in their rear garden. Much more than previous occupants of that house. Even our guests have noticed and we have had to move indoors. Am I just grumpy or should I stand up for my rights? I do not want to fall out with them but a line must be drawn.
