Also, amusing sidenote, the neighbour sprinted down the drive this morning to prevent our shopping delivery pulling up outside our house (see previous pettiness over the driveway) :lol:

Nice work :datass:

Did they actually start cutting any of it down or did you manage to stop them before they got that far?

Unfortunately they've pretty much removed all of it, except for the trees. All the bushes and shrubs are gone :(

Neighbour's husband has now come home from work and is taking over the council discussion.

Feeling properly anxious, assuming that they'll assume it was us, but anyone could've reported them.

Shame, but at least you get to witness them hopefully receiving some form of comeuppance!

Just feign ignorance if they confront you about it, like you say it could have been anyone so there's no reason for them to believe it was you.

I was worried I was being petty but we see lots of birds in that area and have seen plenty of hedgehogs in the undergrowth so, from a selfless perspective, they're damaging the wildlife. Ignorant twats.

I've told my wife to deny all knowledge if we get approached by the neighbours.

Your bosses and your neighbours both seem like mega morons. Zilnad I hope at some point you catch a break and either your boss or your neighbours get replaced by someone better.

Thanks Qikz, that's sweet of you. :wub:

And thanks to everyone for backing me. I feel like this thread breeds the strongest camaraderie amongst us all. :datass:

Will have to get my bin in later tonight, under the cover of darkness :lol:

Dang, man, that just sucks. I really dislike how so much greenery is disappearing from our roads. A lot of residential streets round my way have gradually changed to become waste-strewn car parks rather than attractive living areas.

You did great to alert the council and at least stop some of the destruction, Zilnad!

What kind of an idiot feels they own the road just because they live on it so can do whatever they want in regards to everything on it? Hopefully they get fined. A lot.

You know this is a really good point that I was going to mention, so +1 for hoping you catch a break soon.

With the neighbours, said it before in this thread but I'd just stone face them if they start complaining about parking, noise and basically anything.

Shopping van has parked on one inch of their allocated spot? Shame. But not my van, not my problem.
You've been reported? OK? not my problem.
You've caught COVID? Karma bitch.

One man should not have this much power in this game. Luckily I'm not an ordinary man.

I hope so. The council haven't called me back and I don't suppose they will but they were outside for a long time, assessing the area and getting into deep discussions with the involved parties.

They certainly deserve a fine as it looks horrible now and they've removed a huge area of vegetation that supported the local wildlife.

I was really impressed by how the council dealt with it though. They were really helpful on the phone and turned up within ten minutes and put an immediate stop to it all.

My wife said she overheard the neighbours playing the "overhanging trees" card but there's no way they would ever have gotten away with that as most of the foliage is nowhere near encroaching on their property :lol:

The best thing to do if confronted is act innocent, but say you agree with whatever is said to you. Such as:

"Somebody told the council i had an extension built without permission"

"Really? Well it wasnt me, although i did wonder if someone would say something at some point as it did seem to go up without anyone being asked"

That way, you get to tell them to their face that you agree, they know you think they're a twat, but they think someone else said it, so then think everyone is against them.

Good thinking. I'm optimistic they'll leave us alone anyway.

That's an amazing act of belligerence from them and you're very right about the wildlife too. I'd be strawberry floating livid if something like that happened near me as I hugely value greenery.

Neighbour was just pacing up and down the area of land where the greenery used to be and started brushing fallen leaves and debris aside with her foot. Then occasionally she'd stamp on the floor like she'd found something. :|

Do you think she's looking for buried treasure?

She just minced off with her nose pointed to the sky.

She regrets everything. And is in denial about it.
