    Access to next door gas meter

    Recently moved. We are a detached house and have a side passage back to the previously built extension to the boundary. There was a free standing polycarbonate roof over this passage but no side wall/fence. Due to this you can just step around our gate and access the space, so it is totally un...

    Fences and boundaries

    Hi, Chapter 1 - The Fence and the Boundary When we bought our place we were left a note by the previous owner to let us know that they believed that it was our responsibility to look after the fence on the LEFT of the house. However, several years ago, the neighbour on the left removed the...

    Why a guideline for 1m from boundary?

    I'm planning a two storey side extension and I'm wondering about the "1m from boundary" guideline which seems to be mentioned, when discussing planning permission. I appreciate no neighbour wants an extension butting up against their property. In my case though, I'm on a corner plot where...
