I recently bought a residential property and there is a development going on behind my property where a number of townhouses are being built. I have a 90-metre timber fence as a boundary with the lot being developed. Yesterday I received a notice that the developer wants to build a 1.8 metre high atop a concrete sleeper retaining wall to be the common boundary and that, if I approve, they will remove my fence at their own cost to build the new boundary. The fence is old and a new common fence would be great. I have the option to retain my fence or to approve for it to be cleared to pave the way for new one. I am very inexperienced in this space that is why I thought to post this for some ideas. Do you see any risk in giving the approval for the fence to be taken down ?
