A developer has submitted a planning application to erect a 2 storey 1 bed house. The length of its rear garden will be around 3m (estimate) to our boundary.
Our boundary meaning the side of our garden. The rear of our house and the rear of its house will be 90 degrees (corner plot situation).
We are worried about overlooking and privacy, separation distances, distances between windows from habitable rooms etc.
So really, was just wondering if there was a minimum distance requirement stipulated some place with regards to double storeys and residential garden/boundary.
Your local council will almost certainly have policy guidelines for residential development. These usually detail minimum distances to boundaries, particularly where habitable windows are concerned. It will be on google.
