Hi,

OT ... If push comes to shove, a Matiz is 58" wide, while a Polo is 74" wide. I don't know if either or both include the mirrors. Whether you would want to drive either, is a different matter, but there is a place in society for both,

UPDATE

Fencing contractors arrived this morning. Neighbour was still insisting it should be 50/50. I made it clear to contractors that we didn't want the fence and so they agreed it should be wholly on my neighbour's side. I am watching out the window and can clearly see that the post holes are being dug on her side.

Neighbour is really angry with me. She said I was just being "catty". She said she didn't want to lose any land from her side but she seemed quite content for us to lose!

It's thanks to all you respondents I was able to stand my ground.

Kind regards
Teddy

Thanks



If they're using slotted posts and set out right, it should be fairly easy to accommodate the manhole.

You may have some confusion later over who owns it and where the boundary lies.

the neighbour needs to get real and face the problems she is causing you getting in and out of your drive by her own very selfish actions

Clearly the neighbour has no right to place her fence on the OP's land, but with all due respect despair, it is not the neighbour's problem if a fence wholly on her land causes the OP access difficulties. I am sure teddypinkskin would be the first to agree they have no right of access over the neighbour's land.

Hi Mac

She said she had phoned somebody up, who told her it should be in the middle of the divide, but I couldn't establish who she had spoken to as she was so irate. However when I told her contractor I didn't want it on our land he agreed immediately to put it wholly on her side so I'm guessing she and he both knew it couldn't be 50/50 without our permission. The contractor is an experienced window and conservatory fitter with a good reputation in our area.

My neighbour may have mistakenly believed it was a shared drive however even if that was the case, which it isn't, I still don't think she could have done it without our agreement.


Kind Regards
Teddy

Just to add the contractor was superb, kept all the mess on my neighbour's drive, replaced all our chippings when he'd finished and then came round at the end of the day to check if we were satisfied with everything.

How did he arrange access to the manhole, is it foul or surface water?
