I actually have some sympathy for your plight - it doesn't sound

Are you being ironical? It certainly isn't a plight, by any stretch of
one's imagination. I haven't mentioned this before, but it's the gross lack
of consideration for one's neighbours that really gets to me.

In which case why did you contact the fire brigade? What do you think their
job is : mediating disputes between neighbours, or fire and rescue related
activities? Your actions so far indicate that you believed the former is
part of their job - do you still believe that?

However at least some of your attempts to take action have been in the
wrong place, and the fact you're still complaining that they wouldn't
listen to you indicates you still don't understand why you're wrong.

You're at it again! The people concerned _did_ listen to me, but told me
that they were unable to help me, as they didn't have the
mandate/authority to do so.

They're telling you precisely what I've said - that your attempts to take
action are in the wrong place. Just because they listened to you doesn't
make them the right people to complain to. Kudos to them for listening, but
having done so doesn't actually make them responsible.
