    Neighbour planning velux window facing my bedroom

    Neighbour planning velux window facing my bedroom 15th Apr 18 at 12:10 AM
    Hi I wonder if anyone can advise me on how can i stop this.
    I m in a typical Victorian mid terrace with kitchen / bathroom in a single storey extension.

    My next door neighbour is redesigning his bathroom and he is removing the ceiling and wants a velux above the shower. But that faces my single storey extension and lookimg upwards is my back bedroom window and i feel even with frosted windows is a massive invasion of my privacy.

    Also i m using the space betwen his single storey extension and his as a seating area in the summer. I would not want him opening the window and bathroom smells coming on my terrace or steam

    Surely this is not right but apparently is permitted development. Can i stop him?

    Thanks

    Reading all three of their threads with threats of taking people to court the OP sound like the neighbour from hell.
    I used to have a handle on life, but it broke.

    He also wants to build a conservatory/orangery in the space he is currently protecting

    Groan. Not another one. How many citrus fruits do we need? Or does the OP mean a "conservatory with a roof"?

    He also wants to build a conservatory/orangery in the space he is currently protecting - slightly more glass than one obscured velux window!!!

    I hope he subsequently lies down on his orangerie floor all day and stares up at the OP's bedroom window, looking for his smiling face.

    If I were the OP's neighbour I suspect I'd rather look anywhere but next door.

    Edit: I've just seen the thread. **The OP is planning a conservatory**.

    Yes this neighbour prooved to make improvements that affect me. So the velux he wants is on single storey extension looking at about 45 degrees towards my upper level bedroom window so i think looking up they can see the bedroom.

    What about the view from the road?

What annoys me if he had it the other side he wouldnt be overlooking my house.
