Hi,

 

Thanks for your question.

 

You should check with your local planning authority discreetly to make sure, but it's difficult to envisage a situation in which they would call that a breach of their planning policy.

 

If your next door neighbour had a right to uninterrupted light exercisable over your property then they could restrict high walls.fencing but, again, it's very difficult to see how they could enforce that right against a 5 ft high fence.

 

You are, in all probability, absolutely fine.
