Woman blocks neighbours views by building high wall 4 inches from her neighbours windows.

Post by Syl on Thu Feb 09, 2017 9:06 am

First topic message reminder :

"A woman who built a two-metre wooden fence inches from her neighbour’s windows has defended her actions - and has the backing of a Government agency.
Kate Chubb built the fence around her six-acre plot in Beeks Mill, St Catherine, in Somerset.
Her neighbours complained about the erection and lodged an appeal to force her to take it down.
But Ms Chubb won a blocking to the appeal and has been told by the Planning Inspectorate that it can stay up - provided it isn’t extended.
Her neighbours are angry over the decision issued on February 3, as one said she is “appalled”, reports the Bath Chronicle .
Neighbours Janice and Anthony Hemms, whose Papermill Cottage property now has three windows on the ground floor within four inches of the timber structure."






I bet she is really pleased with herself. Rolling Eyes

How can cows hurt themselves on a window anyway?

IF I WERE the owner of that 6 acre paddock,  and didn't want to look at my neighbours house anymore, I wouldn't have taken the much-more-expensive option of building an ugly (and relatively short-lived..) paling fence.

Rather, I would have planted out more trees, around 15-->>20 feet back from the boundary, and in front of those trees already there, (leaving enough room for grazing and mowing/slashing..).   Those trees would then gradually grow up over a few years, to present an increasing visual barrier to the neighbours, while still letting some token light in to their property.

And with the trees well back from the boundary, there's nothing those neighbours could do about them  !         Wink
