Hight of fencing
Can anyone one help me my neighbour has just added trellis to the top of our a joining fence which takes it to 7.3 ft but also she has added half inch spikes to the top to apparently stop our cats going in her garden ? Is this legal?
Thank you in advance
It's down to planning laws so contact ur local services but as a rule its normally 2 meters in total but this changes from area to area hope this helps thanks ray

The people to ask are the planning folks at your local council.
You should be able to find their details by simply searching for the local council online and then ring them and ask to speak to the planning department and ask them. They will point you in the right direction.
If the property is rented, the normal answer would be no as the height should be only 6' on the back and sides and 4' at the front. If this is the case then you need to talk to their landlord.
