Almost 2 years ago I got a new neighbour. Since she arrived there have been building works going on. I won't detail them as it would be too boring, but it culminated in the original house being demolished and now in the process of being rebuilt. People move to this road because it is quiet and has magnificent sea views. Unfortunately I don't get to see the view much now as there are always lorries, vans and cars (including hers) parked in front of my house.
On the original plans there was a small window overlooking my property, but up high and not able to have direct views into my house due to my carport. But now a large window right opposite my bathroom window has appeared. My window is obscured glass but the neighbour's is not. I asked her about it and she said they had to change it from the small window due to health and safety in case there was a fire. But wouldn't the building regs people have let me know if that was the case? And she said she would obscure it. Now a few weeks later I have found out she means just to cover it with a sticky film. (But not yet done)
I know you can't see detail through the obscured glass in my window but you can see shapes and movement which makes me feel vulnerable, and now I always have to drop the blind whenever I go in there to use the loo or shower.
AIBU to expect that her glass be changed to proper obscured glass? I don't want to be a nasty neighbour but should I contact the council?
