Networkrail plans to erect a palisade fence of 8 feet high

Customer Question

Networkrail plans to erect a palisade fence of 8 feet high about 10 yards across the road and opposite my front window. My house is lower than the road and faces west. Apart from blocking my current rural view it will make my living room even darker in winter than at present. Should Network Rail have obtained planning permission? I knew nothing about it till they started to prepare the ground last week.
