Ivy screening

Hi All.

You can buy live fencing, such as Ivy Screening. Are these allowed under permitted development?

It doesn't have to be ivy. It's just more the type of screening

You can install tall poles with wires between and grow a plethora of climbers up and over

Hi despair,

install tall poles with wires between

best to clarify - these would need to be 2m tall poles (or shorter) to avoid a potential breach of planning law because a fence greater than 2m in height would require planning permission first...

kind regards, Mac

Mac

That is not the advice we always used to hand out
The OP has 2 choices ...plant bamboo or some other shrubs like philadelphus that will grow tall or make a living screen woth poles wires and climbing plants
The latter would be best sited away from the actual boundary

Hi Despair

So are you saying I would be allowed to put poles and guides 2m high along the boundary to encourage the growth of climbers etc?

yes - but they’re wrong

the best you’ll get on this is that it may or may not be allowed because what you’d have constructed is most definitely a fence so the LPA might decide to take enforcement action.

kind regards, Mac

You can go up to 2m if the boundary is not with a highway.

My neighbour and I don't talk at all due to the recurring problem of her ivy. I've spent a lot of money on removing it off my side of the fence so it's tidy. It's her fence but the trellis bit has collapsed on one of the two panels due to the weight of the ivy, it has warped so would have to be replaced. She asked me if she could come on my side to repair it and I've said no. Her fence, her ivy, her problem. It's been a thorn in my side for years. I have been in contact with Environmental Health who said I am well within my rights to refuse her access. Thoughts please - she is a nasty piece of work.

you need to start your own thread - this one is someone else’s...
