50m length I wish! It is a small house 8.22m x 8.40m so plans for garage and proposed extension are tight

I hope you're paying your conveyancing solicitor by the hour for this.
The "issue" may mean you have too much land, or too little. It could mean a 75mm difference in each side.
Over, say, a 50m length, that 15cm means that someone erected a fence pretty well in a straight line.
I've actually taken the trouble to calculate how much off a 90 degree perpendicular line this fence is. It is, assuming from the front boundary of your house to the back is 50m, 89.83 degrees.
Waste your money if you want, but I really don't see that you have a problem here, other than with your expectations.
The Boundary length from front to back 34m. There is another issue the Surveyor says Council don't actually own 0.5m of this length as it is the only private property that has registered ie along the rear of the boundary of the line of houses and I will have problems registering it.
But you are correct 75mm but where? Can you be sure it is both sides and not on one side?
The drive is only 2.90m inc low retaining wall and steps into side entrance. So if just drive side then yes it will affect the drive and the ability to erect garage etc. If it is at the median party wall it would look odd and an issue with gutter but acceptable. I just need someone to say where this difference lies before I start garage and extension. If I have to argue at that time it will be expensive.
Maybe I am naive but my expectations should be that the plan correctly identify what I am buying. This is first registration and it would be good to get it correct.
I asked my conveyancing solicitor not to do any work until I can clarify the boundaries. But you are correct it is still expensive and time consuming.
