I have spoken to the lady of the couple on two occasions, she seems ok, but also like she could be a bit of a fishwife! I will approach them about it but not at this moment as we are having work done at the top of our garden and the skip is actually arriving today - I fear they might put stuff in it as they are renovating this bungalow. I completely agree it is intrusive though and feel nobody would want it in their garden.
Yes, I am going to remove the slabs and concrete, though I have no idea what's under them, it looks like it could just be soil. I think I will extend the rockery round and probably put big pots with tall trees in.
I do wonder about the boundary as the side access behind our gate is very narrow, so narrow that you cant fit a digger through, hence why we are digging our garden ourselves! Their side access is much wider but its on a higher up bit of concrete (you can see it where that little brick is towards the bottom of the sill)

Failing that, Google "Screen with envy" for some very nice garden screen ideas - or talk to them.
They may intend to demolish it, in which case you may not have the problem at all for much longer.
