HI, Firstly apologies if this is not a forum that welcomes these types of questions but I find myself in a situation where I need some educated advice.
Background, The house behind me is a council owned house in a private estate. The tenants have a trampoline overlooking my house/garden. We cant use the garden for having kids shouting over at us or firing stuff over the wall. I approached the tenant to see if there was anything she could do. Her reply was to build a and free standing claimbing frame which is towering over the boundry wall. Upon making a cup of tea one saturday morning in Boxer shorts I had kids shouting over asking what I was looking at. This was wrong in many ways so we decided to erect fence panelling on top of the wall to buy back some privacy.
I had approached the council but they did nothing. No laws apparently against 10ft climbing frames or trampolines.
5 Weeks after erecting the fencing and enjoying some privacy again I had the council tenant come to the house to inform me that she had reported me to planning and to expect a visit oh yes and if I didnt like being overlooked I should move to the country .
My question to you is if I did get called on by the planning authorities requesting that I take down, could I legally get away with putting it on stils infront of but not adjoined to the wall?? Apologies again if this is not the right forum of if anyone is insulted by me posting this here but as I say, just not sure where to turn on this one and that council tenant is unapproachable to say the least. All I want is some level of privacy back. The fence panelling is 3ft high on an existing 6ft high wall. BTW, I know the answer to this is to discuss with the tenant and come to a mutual agreement like adults BUT I have tried and she is unapproachable, no willingness to even discuss.
