Neighbours conifers

hi , my neighbours who I have previously had problems with have planted 10 conifers on my boundary .

in the high winds 4 fence panels fell down . no one is legally responsible for fixing of the fence . 

We agreed to get fence fixed and split price.  

now as said previously . They have planted 10 conifers in the space were the 4 fence panels are missing .

is this allowed as when they grow they will block sunlight and if I mysel get fence fixed surely they will push fence over 

any ideas  or suggestions ????????

    If the conifers grow beyond the boundary of your garden you will be within your rights to cut them back.  If you are saying your neighbours have actually planted them on the  boundary line you would be within your rights to tell them to move them and replant them in their own garden.

  • Thanks for the info . I thought as much myself . The neighbours are a nightmare full stop.  

    looks like I will be cutting back the conifers then

    To the best of my knowledge there is no specific 'right to light' in the garden.

    I have found this which might be of use once the hedge grows.
