Latest is that we are beginning to erect the fence which is a planing condition saying I need to erect a 2m fence along the boundary.
As there is an established hedge along the bottom half we are building a feather edge fence as that is easier than using panels. We installed the posts all the up to the driveway to the footpath, which is extra wide as there used to be an old turnig lane so there is a 4-5m footpath before the road.
We don't plan the erect the fence here for a while as the level of the drive has to be sorted out and the crossover onto the footpath is a bit of a mess as well and looks to have sunk.
Anyway there is a row of 6 ft high posts up the side of the driveway and it's the only thing seperating the drives since he pulled the old green wire fence and concrete posts out one weekend when we were away to put an edging on his drive (fence was mine and no he didn't asked my permission he just did it as that is the type of guy he is)
He came over at the weekend to same he wasn't happy with the height and he wanted the bit near the road to be reduced height to give him a viability spray. He didn't like it when I pointed out he wouldn't have an issue with visiblity if he reversed into his drive and drove out and not the other way, I also pointed out that his buddy next door has a 7ft privet hedge along his front boundary that was taller than the fence posts and that we hadn't taken the posts all the way out to the footpath (due to an brick post footing.)
He then insisted that I had to agree the fence with him first before I erected it and I told him the fence was on my land, I was paying for it and would do whatever the hell I wanted to and it was nothing to do with him.
His parting words were "I'll just cut it down to size then". This is what the post is really about, we are going on holiday in a week or two and I'm not sure who will be on site, but he is the type of guy that would go out and cut the fence posts in half where he wants the fence height to reduce. This of course is criminal damage (and trespass) but issue might be proving that it was him and not someone else.
So I'm wondering if I used my time lapse camera set up in the house to record the drive and fence posts, and he catch him cutting posts down would this be something that the police would be able to use against him? Not that I want him charged, would just be nice if someone had a chat to him to tell him to back off and he doesn't have to right to continually tell us what he wants to happen regarding our property, and that cutting someone else's posts down is criminal damage, even I he thinks that should be half the height.
