In-fill for car port side

I want to fill the gap between the top of the fence and the car port roof pictured here:


I'm thinking white uPVC to match the side of the short pitched roof - is this shiplap cladding?

I thought I could use fasica board to cover the top horizontal timber length first as that will fit nicely, but I'm not sure about how get a neat fit with the cladding.

Also assume I need some vertical battens between the uprights to get the appropriate framework to attach the cladding to (the two uprights themselves not really being enough to support), but unsure the best way to achieve that? There is no third upright behind the wall on the right, just the brick return wall itself.

Suggestions and guidance appreciated...

I’d use polycarbonate sheet . It’s stronger and will match the roof.
Knock something up matching or complimenting those fence panels to avoid the haphazard shanty town vibe.

Is that your fence or the neighbours? As the neighbour might not anything fixed to their fence.

The fence is mine but I don't want to affix anything to it, not really keen on something looking like fence panels on the side of the car port either...

I quite like the idea of polycarb as it will allow more light in, not sure about the aesthetic.

Any opinions on whether I need further timber "framework" to nail it to and easiest way to construct this?
