The six-year battle has led to accusation and counter accusation, and the involvement of a lawyer and a traffic engineer. And there appears to be no end in sight to the dispute between Kathleen and Glyn Hardy, aged in their 80s, and Patsy Clegg, 67, who had the fence built outside her property at Sanctuary Villas, Burwood. The Hardys say moving to Sanctuary Villas, after the February 22, 2011, earthquake destroyed their home, was the “biggest mistake of our lives.” They say Mrs Clegg’s trellis and wooden fence is illegal and dangerous. The body corporate committee which oversees Sanctuary Villas affairs on behalf of the residents sought legal advice, which said the fence breached the Unit Titles Act and recommended it be removed. •Turn to page 4 DANGEROUS: Sanctuary Villas residents Kathleen and Glyn Hardy say that the fence built around a neighbouring villa limits visibility and is a hazard for drivers.
