Is it acceptable for someone to use their garage facing the pavement, as a workshop, nearly every day of the week? Year on year, banging, drilling, using electrically noisy tools, and on occasions sparks flying everywhere and large dust clouds?

Great! Tell everybody beforehand so the offenders can be on their guard. Then conclude that there isn't any evidence of noisy neighbours.
If you want to catch the offenders, don't tell them you're coming!

That is exactly what I was thinking.

In Germany people are not allowed to make anti social noise on a Sunday, so at least it is quiet on one day of the week, otherwise a fine is issued.

No, I think its anti social, and if someone is using their garage too regularly then they're probably running a business from a private address. It could also be a health and safety hazard if the sparks hit passers by, on the pavement and a risk to parked cars.
I hope they are not going to limit this noise control check to Falmouth but do Helston as well.
Why don't some people have a shed in their back garden if they want to do DIY jobs not do them out in the street, I have a similar problem with anti social neighbours.

When someone works during the week but has a house that needs doing up, they have no alternative but to do noisy jobs at weekends.
The people who complain have usually done their house up years before or don't need/want to do it.
I believe in live and let live, in tolerance, although if people take noise levels to real extremes, they can have no complaints about being reported to the council.
