Dispute Between Neighbours – this is a true story…

A town councillor in Wales, Mark Easton, had a beautiful view of the mountains, until a new neighbour purchased the land below his house and built a new home.

The new home was 18 inches higher than the planning dept had approved, so Mark Easton, mad
about his lost view, went to the local authority to make sure they enforced the roof line height.
The new neighbour had to drop the roof height, at great expense.

Recently, Mark Easton called the planning dept, and informed them that his new neighbour had
installed some vents on the side of his new property.

Mark didn’t like the look of these vents and asked the planning dept to investigate.

The Local Authority said the vents can stay since there is no planning law referring to shutter design.

The pattern is supposed to be a cactus theme.

At times I am so glad I dont have neighbors within an ear shout! I’ve had some good neighbors but I’ve also had a few nightmares living next door.

Dennis, its good to know that I’m not the only one that noticed that. I wonder if the neighbor is trying to tell the councilman something.

I wonder how much that cost him, in addition to lowering his roof. Not a way to earn karma!
