Our neighbours have just started work on a loft conversion. It will have a small dormer window. When they applied for planning we objected to the local planning department saying it would invade our privacy as houses are small and terraced and it will overlook our garden. We are also in a conservation order so felt it would not be in keeping with the area to allow the full dormer window. Our objections were noted but full planning was given anyway, though I believe the Dormer window will only be small and not across the whole of the rear of their house.
Neighbour has now erected scaffolding which overhangs our property slightly and has not asked for a Party Wall Agreement - I have tried to read through the Agreement but is seems to mention boundary walls and digging down as if in building a conservatory and I am not sure as it is a loft conversion if they should have asked us to sign a party wall agreement. Can anyone confirm what the position is and if I should insist that they stop work and get such agreement from us? Thanks for any help with this will be much appreciated.
