My neighbour who has recently acquired the property

This answer was rated:

My neighbour who has recently acquired the property upon her brothers death, has planted around 100 plants, and trees next to my boundary fence, and house, the trees planted include Leylandii, Eucalyptus, Scotch fir ,Laurel, Camellia, magnolia, and various other garden shrubs., and being exnurserymen we are aware that several of the varities she has planted will cause problems in the future, especially the Leylandii, Eucalyptus, and Laurel. As the land is farm land, is she allowed to convert this land into garden without planning permission, and what redress will we have when these trees grow up and take the light from and over hang our property, as they undoubtedly will do with their canopy, and root growth. We have informed the council about what is happening next door, but they seem uninterested, and the neighbour herself is unapproachable to communicate with, as in her opinion what ever she does is always ok. This summer we had trouble with her dog barking all night on several occasions, when she let the dog out at night chasing rabbits, we approached her, and she blamed us for feeding the badgers in our garden which is complete nonsense so in the end we were forced to report the matter to the council, so as you can see the atmosphere is a little tense between us, and we want to try, and settle this in a sensible way before the tree issue gets out of hand. we have photographic evidence of the land was in the past, and how it is now, should you need to see it.
