Unfortunately the Tribunal does not have any power over this sort of problem. Have you thought about a mediation? This could resolve the problems but would require the neighbour to cooperate.
If the parties agree to go to mediation, then it does become a binding process. It is formal in the sense that the mediator will call the meeting and then facilitate discussion, and try to help the parties reach an agreement but if they do not agree, you would have to go to court. The mediation would cost a fraction of the court however
