We have a small wall between our house and the house next door. On our side of it is the back garden, and on theirs is their driveway.

As it stands it's about 0.7m high. I want to build it up to just under 2m but the neighbour says I need a building warrant if it's more than 1.2m high. As the brickie is coming on Friday that won't be happening.

Does anyone know if his stated 1.2m is correct or not?

Very often there are covenants in the deeds that state the maximum height of a fence/wall between or to the frontage of properties. If it were me I'd put the brickie off whilst investigating further.

I have always believed it was 2m and you could do this under permitted development rights. However if this is to any road frontage then it needs planning permission. This might be the case here so I would think a quick call to planning might be an idea. Of course you could plant a Laurel hedge and there would be no height restriction on that.

I've just been online and checked with someone who knows as well as the brickie himself. Def 2m as long as it's more than 3m from a road. Can find absolutely nothing online regarding 1.2m. The fence that used to be there (was blown down!) was 1.8m, so can't see why you would need to halve that size to use blocks! Told the brickie to bash on, but will try and confirm with local council tomorrow....

I'd be inclined to believe (given the additional info) that there was a 1.8 metre fence, that the are no such covenants in place. Crack on.
