Like this “GoUKIP” from Lincolnshire commented:
I get the concerns if it were above ground but FOR GOODNESS SAKE?I think its jealousy with a lot of people, good luck to them I say. – Lynn , liverpool, United Kingdom, 06/11/2012 19:17______this isn’t jealousy. These are very valid concerns. Having lived in Canada and used to canadian thinking with their basement renovations. It is a very serious concern the neighbours houses will be affected.

A comment by “Nick” from Toronto said:
Good grief. I can’t believe people are saying that it shouldn’t be a problem if you can’t see it. Don’t you know anything about basic construction? They’re digging around foundations. Foundations! You know, the things things are built on. His and other people’s! Even if you get all the figures right, things go wrong. Think of building sandcastles. It’s a lot easier adding sand on top than building the moats. They’re always seem to collapse.

“Anne” from Aderdeen commented:
My neighbours spent 6 weeks doing rennovations and that was disturbing enough – imagine 4 years!! No consideration for others nowadays.
