Thanks for the reply , just seems unfair as this house has stood since 1937 and now we sit in the dark in summer evenings while the new build enjoys all evening sunlight yes we objected to the property

Sitting out in the sunshine in a back garden they own is a luxury most people are unable to enjoy in this packed land and in any case some people prefer shady gardens and may are currently seeking to keep houses cool and shady. If your priority for housing is a garden basking in sun and your current garden does not have that, then in this land of free will, you have the option and right to move to a property that does have what you want.

Presumably there was a space next to the property available for 'infill'....something to watch out for next time.

Just wanted to know our rights some people actually like sunlight not shade ,it not about basking in sunlight its more about the principle of not having any say on how it effects our home , I don't believe anybody would be happy losing 5hours of warming sun on there patio for someone else to enjoy there's

The house has been built over an easment for the main sewer as its built around a pumping station so it look like the house may not been build properly? the road has been closed since oct 2017 as legal rangelings have been afoot . We did not know it would overshadow us in the evening athe time but objected to the house

The easment is that that house is not to be built within 3 metres of the pipe united utilitiestold us on Fri / wonder why it hasn't been ordered to be taken down


am not very good on legal stuff
