Its bad news I am afraid.
Sadly the neighbour can put whatever sign they want (within reason, ie offensive) on their OWN land. You can not make them remove it.
This is not a criminal matter and if it went to Court you would have to convince a Judge that a non offensive sign on a persons own land ought to be removed - that would be hard.
The only thing I can think of is if you speak to your local Planning department. There may be a planning contravention by having a sign erected.
I am sorry if this is not the answer you want and certainly not the one I want to give you, but I have a duty to be honest.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
