Can you receive compensation for road works outside your home?

Hi all,

My entire street is currently being dug up and the sign outside states it will continue until July.

We didn't receive any notice in the mail etc., it just began one day about 5 weeks ago. I can handle the noise even though it isn't convenient to have a jackhammer outside your window while working from home. The major problem is the significant amount of dirt and debris that is constantly flying through the air. My windows are covered in dust. Of course I need to open my windows from time to time for fresh air, this leaves my home covered in dust which is terrible for my asthma/allergies.

Someone mentioned to me that I could receive a kind of compensation for these works. Do you know if that is true and who I should contact for this?

Thank-you and have a nice weekend.
