If that has not worked, if you are located in the UK, Citizen's Advice will give you advice. From outside the UK contact the UK European Consumer Centre.

Other Redress

Eg about noise, pollution, etc.  Also should one licence holder complain about another. Please contact the Licensing Section on 01785 619402 in the first instance.
