Thanks for your message, and sorry to hear about this. To erect a new boundary wall higher than 2m in height will most certainly require planning permission. What you will need to do is report the matter to the council for their attention. I hope this helps.
Thank you again for visiting JustAnswer, please let me know if you need me to clarify anything or if you have any additional questions. I am happy to help.

I'm sorry to hear that, if he had a party wall surveyor you should have received notice of the works if he is carrying out works on a shared property boundary. If it is not a shared property boundary, and it exceeds 2m he will need planning permission and cannot mask it by making up the ground, or even if he were made to take it down and then erected a higher wall to block your view you may take legal action via an injunction to prevent this, if need be. The best course of action for now is to report the matter to the council who will be able to investigate. All the best, John.
