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.

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!
