I remember  years ago,
                                  Getting stuck between two neighbours who owned adjoining semis. They could not stand one another. A applied for planning and B objected on the grounds that it would cast a shadow on his rear bedroom windows, The founds were moved 300mm back from the party wall line and the council gave go ahead. B was a rather unpleasant chap but I could see his point. It did not take long to do the extension and A was the ideal client and good payer. So we had a Sunday Bar b Q that included the roofers and plumber  to celebrate and I went my way.
   About 2 year later I got a call from A, to go and visit the family, The next door neighbour, B had built an extension using A,s wall which meant he came over at least 300mm on to A,s property. A and B were still not on speaking terms. A found it not the least upsetting but frankly i was worried. B thought that A,s silence was a token of surrender but when B,s extension was almost finished, A called the council out to inspect. B threw the council officials off his  property and made threats at the council officials and  A, The police were called and B was carted away. B had young family just like A had and the whole show was in bad taste. A year later B had sold up and left. There was a lot of that kind of thing in the Medway towns. I had a few "to do,s" with the same council officials concerning other jobs but I found them easy to talk to and fair minded.
   As for the happy chap with the solar panels, His woes are only starting, Grin. I foresee a large union Jack proudly flying on a mast next door and accidentally ...........well maybe not.

Looks like his panels are in shade from the existing house, never mind the planned extension.

I do get where the 'engineer' is coming from. The photos on the DM website show what is possibly another array at the back of his house facing the neighbour at an incline. As the neighbour's ridgeline is running the length of his plot the midday sun is unlikely to affect the second array during summer and introduce an increased shading angle as the neighbour's roof slopes down towards the party wall, however the proposed dormers could well do.

Looking at it, it looks a pretty marginal installation. Its really all about money isn't it. He'll lose a couple of hundred quid a year. I'm not jure he's got a good aregumet, really

It's about neighbours  trying to get one up on each other.
         Unfortunately,  it's almost  impossible to heal such rifts.
      It's sad really.
