Concrete spurs any good?

HI .I have a fence with 3 loose posts and they appear to have snapped at the bottom as i can see a crack on one of them. I would like to fix the fence fully eventually but cant affford it at the moment. How good are the concrete spurs? would they support my fence for at least 9 months? It started with one panel and post leaning and now its 3 loose posts and 2 panels. The first one seemed to have been caused by the roots of our tree. I guess that needs to go too.

Replacing the boundary fence

Do I have to let the neighbours know when I will be replacing the boundary fence?

Planning permission for fence?

Hi all,
I am planning to get a higher fence (about 140cm) and driveway gate to keep my dog from escaping. All of my garden faces the road without a pavement inbetween. Apparently I will need to submit drawings to scale for this purpose, of where exactly the fence and gate will go.

Who would I need to contact for this task?


Attaching new fencing to original fences

My neighbour, has replaced the fence that’s at the rear of our garden and the rear of theirs. They did so without speaking to us, but it’s better than the old fence. However we are left with a gaping gap at the bottom which is very visible from our kitchen and the boundary line has been moved back which means the fences at the side of our property which are only a year old are not now attached and are a 15 cm gap to the new fence. Do they have to rectify this? We want the missing gravel bored put in and the fences to be attached

neighbour raised land on their side

My neighbour has had contractors in and they have placed concrete gravel boards against my fence posts, as the ground has now been made higher will this be too much weight for the concrete fence posts. Also when I want to replace a panel their ground will fall into my garden. Is this allowed. I have a six foot fence that is know rendered a three foot one at one end and they can see over it so no privacy. They have also put hanging baskets and washing line on the fence also. Help what can I do please.
