Effect on Neighbours of Planning Applications

Some of these applications may affect neighbours on either side. The Joint Planning Committee has produced the following note for applicants and their immediate neighbours.

 Party animal Or Party wall

 The first can be fun, the second not so.

The Party Wall Act 1996 could affect you, even if you do not share a wall with your neighbour.

The Government has produced a guide to the Act that includes what should be done if you are contemplating work near to your neighbour’s boundary and what you can do if your neighbour is contemplating work near or next to you.

The Guide is split into sections covering the significant issues including:

What are my rights under the Act if I want to do work on an existing party wall?

What does the Act say if I want to build up against or astride the boundary line?

What does the Act say if my neighbour wants to carry out building work?
