I have a wall on one side of the house with a fence posts and panels.

The top of the wall is flush with my paving/property, which drops 1.2m on the nieghbours side.

The current fence posts are mounted on top of the wall by using bolted MetPosts and 75mm x 75mm x 1.2m wooden posts.

I want to replace the fence with 1.8m high featheredboarding using 100 x 100 x 1.2m posts and rails etc.

But rather than trust bolted Metposts on top of the wall, could I use 75 x 75 x 1.2 concrete spurs sunk 600 with postcrete on my side against the wall

Would the spurs support the 1.8h fence posts and fencing.

thanks

Your proposal of using Concrete Spurs concreted in @ a depth of 60cm sounds fine to me.
My only concern would be the feather boarding. This being close boarded could act as a sail!
In my view, palings with a 20mm oe 25mm gap between each of them would allow some of the wind to pass.
I am not an engineer, and you say the existing fence is panels with bolted on post supports.
Panels also act as a sail, so if you had no problem from wind with them, you should be fine with the Feathered boards!
