Hi, our new next door neighbours have just lodged a planning application for an extension which would block all light to one elevation of our property. They haven’t been in touch with us about it, and in the application, incorrectly stated that there was no window which would be impacted by the application. As they’ve not spoken to us about it in advance of their application, and have mis-stated that our window does not exist on the application, we’re unwilling to approach them informally as it doesn’t look very likely that this would alter their approach. We have lodged a formal objection to their application through Lewisham planning and have sought a site visit from planners.
However, our understanding (given some very specific issues relating to our specific circumstances - there is already light blocking of that window and so the light is all the more precious) is that our best chance of preventing this situation is via an injunction which we have an excellent chance of getting approved.
Does anyone have a recommendation for a local legal firm which undertake this kind of work?
