My neighbour has erected a nightmare extension… it’s so ridiculous we want to move

A COUPLE say they are considering moving because their neighbour has erected a "nightmare" extension.

Rod and Alison Pearson, who live in Bulwell, Notts, have blasted their next-door for "blocking out their sunlight" – with construction work creating "a real mess" and "unreal noise".

The pair – who have been in their Armstrong Road home for four years – say while their neighbour has been building a loft extension and orangery since July they have been unable to open their windows because of "dust flying everywhere".

Rod, 56, told NottinghamshireLive: "It's been a nightmare for months now between the extension itself and the mess of it being built.

"It's ridiculous, it is like a whole new bungalow sat on top of the roof above our two houses. And the orangery that they've built is more like a double garage.

"We used to get sun all day in the garden and we'd sit out there with family, now the garden will be knackered in summer.

"The orange panelling is not in keeping at all with the rest of the houses here, either – it doesn't look right at all."

Rod, who works in construction, says he and his wife, 46, are no longer on speaking terms with their neighbour and feel compelled to move away.

"We are now on about moving house, it's driven us that mad," he added.

"I have no idea when it's going to be finished. I just hope it doesn't bring our house price down – I would love to know how they keep getting plans approved.

"The reason for moving to this house in the first place was for the lovely garden and we socialise a lot there with our family and all that sunlight we used to have in it is all gone.

"But nobody seems to get that concern really so it's gone ahead."

It comes after a retired businessman infuriated his neighbours by extending his house into a church graveyard.

Charles Ryan, 73, demolished and rebuilt his back wall alongside several headstones while renovating his home – but has since been slapped with a £100,000 bill after being ordered to tear it down.

Locals in the village of Quebec, County Durham, were outraged at the former concrete firm boss' building work, which they claim "desecrated" the historic St John the Baptist Church cemetery.
