VERY HIGH fence structure - is this allowed ?

VERY HIGH fence structure - is this allowed ?

Postby mango224 » Fri Mar 25, 2005 12:01 pm

Dear all,

I know nothing about garden laws so I am writting on here for some advice in regards to my neighbours fence structure. They are the neighbours at our back garden and moved in 1 year ago. They put up a normal fence which is around 2 meters.

Now they are putting up a structure that is @ least 4 meters right behind it - it looks for plants to grow on, but I am not sure. This is very high and looks ugly. I did try to talk to them but they say they can build as high as they like and their is nothing I can do against this. :?: Is this correct ... :?: I love my garden and this really spoils my view ... Please HELP !!

From the picture it is clear that it is netting not a fence so there is nothing you can do.....As to why on earth they have put it I do not know as it looks ridiculous to me...The minds of some people.....
Mind you I don't like the look of that white fence at all

Actually i dont think they can put up that green mesh .......many planning depts would consider it to be a fence

If it was very very open mesh to grow honeysuckle etc up it might be allowed but close mesh like that is somewhat different .........with a good gale it will probably blow down too so hope for a good storm

Grow plants up this green mesh?! No-way! This is a golf net if ever I saw one, for practising golf drives.
Not sure if this makes any difference to your appeall to remove it, but maybe if it is for your neighbour's recreational purposes it would be allowed?

Further advise needed.

Thank you for your replies so far. I have no idea what this net is for - I did ask but got told to mind my own business so that was that. I really hope he`ll take this down. What should I do? I tried taking to him without any luck. Any further advice?

Try contacting your LA to see what they have to say.

That never occured to me it would appear to be of no purpose other than a golf ball catcher
