Council noise abatement system works well if you have the stamina to use it. They will go round and warn them, then if nothing changes, send letters to all neighbours to ask them if it affects them. Hopefully a few will back you up. All names and addresses are kept secret so they don't know who has complained. They do another visit warning that the next step is court action and if nothing changes they get taken to court. Works for parties, rowdy kids, revving cars, noisy garden machinery at antisocial hours and barking dogs...If the police have been called this adds to the evidence.
As above ring the police, you must be preparedto complete. Statement.
They can also issue a proabition order and can seize the equipment
Google the environmental protection order procedure or the Act.
If you need anything or struggle finding it, letmeknow I will get it for you.
You have the right to a peaceful and undisturbed home environment..
Call the police every time - make sure they can hear over the phone what is going on. Insist on them taking action and giving you an incident number, every time.
I went through this for about 6 months in Sydney. The neighbours were renting. I ended up writing a letter weekly, or more often, to the renting agent, I included the incident numbers and detailed descriptions of the misbehaviour in every letter.
They finally got evicted. But it was a horrible experience.
If they own the property I'd be writing to the council and possibly going to my MP.
