If you’re concerned about the impact of your neighbour’s extension on your property, there are several things you can do:
Discuss your concerns with your neighbour: It’s a good idea to have an open and honest conversation with your neighbour about your concerns. They may be willing to make changes to their plans to mitigate any negative impact on your property.

Seek legal advice: If you’re unable to reach an agreement with your neighbour or if you believe that your rights are being infringed upon, it may be necessary to seek legal advice.
