Customer Question

Our neighbours wish to erect a mesh fence (1.2m) high on the boundary line (82m), we understand the needs of our neighbour who has small children and we back onto a creek. The problem is our boundary runs at an acute angle to the driveway which is exposed to ourselves, not the neighbour, as there is high hedge (3m) on their side, separating the properties. We have had one only meeting and all solutions presented by us have been totally ignored. Three hand written quotes have been submitted, with no consultation with us and they are demanded we pay equal share. Thank you
