So at my house we have 2 parking spots one fully flagged and one with gray slate chippings and our beigh8also has gray slate chippings but uses her front land as a garden. We have erected a small border fence on our drive to establish our driveway. We checked all our boundary and everything our elderly neighbour was unhappy about this but never said anything while I put the fence up left it 3 days and then verbally abused myself with some very hurtful and personal things. I kept calm apologised she felt that way and when her son was at home and my husband was home we could all chat. Days went by and finally her son came around and said he likes the fence but she really dosnt and has threatened to go to a solicitor even after agreeing for us all to sit down and talk about it. Anyway he asked if we had looked at ou restrictive conevants which he said states we can't errect a fence. The conevants were written in 1987 when the house was first built. Our neighbour is threatening to get a solicitor involved which obviously we don't want. Where do we stand. The fence is more of a border edging it 30cm high. Should we take it down? We definitely want some sort of devide but in the conevants states no fence, wall or bushes can be put up.
