We are being bullied by our neighbour who has got planning permission to build in his back garden.
To do this he has to lower the party wall by about a metre between our driveways to satisfy the local highways. If I do not want the wall lowering do I have to agree with this. If not what action should I be taking before it is demolished.
Your neighbour would have to serve you with notice under section 2(2)(m) to reduce the height of the wall (to a minimum height of 2 metres). If you want the wall to remain at its existing height then you must serve a counter notice under section 4 – this right is spelt out in section 11(7) of the Party Wall Act.
