Rights during construction work


My landlord (who also lives in the same building) is planning to do some renovation work to the outside of the building. This will last 3 months and the whole place will be covered with scaffolding. They have informed us that during the day it will be noisy and dusty.

Does anyone know what my rights are here? Are we entitled to some discount in the rent for the duration? They have offered a reduction that amounts to 5% of my rent, which to be honest feels like so little I would have felt happier if they offered nothing at all.

Thanks for any help.
