AND THE NEIGHBOUR HAS ASKED MY MOTHER TO HAVE THEM CUT BACK,AS THEY ARE CAUSING DAMAGE IN HER GARDEN IS MY MOTHER RESPONSABLE FOR THIS

Hi,

On the greenfield site(currently arable land) adjacent to my property, a major development is proposed on two sides of my property - 555 properties - including a new bus lane 65 metres from any open able windows of our house. On the outline planning application so far applied for which in includes the bus lane, the developer is not proposing any fences/walls on the boundary/demise line between our properties. Instead he has in his documentation suggested that the 'existing garden tree's/bushes ect. are sufficient? When the beech hedge dies down in winter you will easily gain access to our property from the proposed bus lane and adjacent footpath. This will be a major security risk and acoustic nightmare.

Can the local planning authority insist that the boundary is treated accordingly to treat our two main concerns?

Thank you

my neighbour hacedk five feet of my laurel hedge outside my front open plan property saying that piece of land is actually hers. I have lived here for 24 years and looked after both hedge and lawn meticulously since buying from new. she I claiming that where our houses are "joined" by a small fence to which her back gate is accessed, that from the gate post to the front garden is hers and she has hacked the laurel (6ft tall and 4 foot wide) away. I am worried about leaving my house to find she has done more when I return and am now on Prozac for stress. what can I do. At the front of my house her driveway joins my lawn and the hedge is along the very front of my property.
