I want to build an extension to the rear of my semi detached house this will be a permitted development right up to close to the boundary but just fractionally inside my side of the boundary as my neighbour has an existing garden wall about 1.7m high built on his side and right up to the boundary. My neighbour is concerned about the effect of my proposed extension on his light. I am concerned that if I build my extension my neighbour may then he take some action because of light issues – how can I get peace of mind that my permitted development cannot be challenged over light?
I understand that I need to give notice under the Party Wall Act – This is, if I understand correctly, in my case only relating to the excavations and is irrelevant to light issues – please confirm.
I believe the notice period to be only 1 month and not 2 monthsas I have read in a similar question on this forum ?
