    Our kitchen extension plans were approved 12 months ago with no objections from the neighbours.

    We are now ready to start the work and gave the paperwork to our next door neighbour for the party wall act.

    He came over to chat through the plans and he told us he thought the extension was to the rear and not starting at the front.

    He said he is now worried about light restrictions to his side window…he does have windows at the back of the same room. He said he didn’t see the plans but i understand that when the council informed the neighbours about our application they provided a link to the planning portal where the plans could be viewed.

    Could planning be reversed?

    No – he had the time at the planning permission stage and obviously hasn’t paid enough attention. He can be difficult over the party wall which could be costly though so try to keep him on side.

    He is too late – his time was during the planning permission. He might be tricky though.

    Be very careful that your build is in-keeping with the plans. He will be out to find out anything that is slightly different so that he can change things. But he can’t change things – it’s too late.

    Thanks everyone. I was concerned as he was commenting on his light and didn’t know where we stood.

    Right to light only covers a small amount of cases and his time to complain was during planning. how long has the window been there for? it will only be an issue if it is blocking a significant amount of light and the window has been there for over 20 years.
