Posted By: gustyturbineI am building a retaining wall along the boundary as required just on my land to allow for a land drain behind with drainage stone.
Posted By: CWattersthe planning officer said they couldn't take action because the land owner had not submitted a level survey with the planning application so there was nothing to prove what the level was before!
Posted By: gustyturbineMore importantly the developer has now moved the property from 2250mm from the boundary to 1750mm. Can he do that?

Posted By: gustyturbineI am hacked off if I am honest but what do you do? Highlight the issue with planning and he has to stop work and jump through hoops or say nothing and live with it. If I mention the house position then at least I have a polite lever to request the garden height reduction.
Posted By: windy lambSounds like the bloke ain't gonna spend any money on a wall as he's not prepared to spend any on a muck shift.I didn't realise the developer was also the neighbour but it doesn't hurt to stand up for yourself. If you politely stand up to him then at least he's not going to think he can get away with anything and really start taking the micky. I'm sure once he realises you are firm but fair then he will think about the consequences of his actions
