The Star 9 News Latest Christchurch news at www. Pensioners still fighting over fence .kiwi Thursday May 4 2017 • By Sarla Donovan THE STOUSH over a fence in a Burwood retirement village looks set to continue. Retirees at the Sanctuary Villas, Burwood had been facing off for six years over a humble trellis and wooden fence. Patsy Clegg had the fence built outside her property, upsetting neighbours Kathleen and Glyn Hardy. The fence borders a private access road used by residents and the Hardys claimed it was illegal and dangerous. Mrs Clegg has now agreed to shift the fence back from the road kerbing, but wants the Hardys to sign off on the plan before starting any work. “I don’t want the Hardys having another go at me. I’ve got no faith that they’re not going to.” But Kathleen Hardy told The Star until the fence went back to where it was when they moved into Sanctuary Villas in 2011, they won’t be signing anything. “We can’t properly judge what it will be like (from a drawing).” STILL FIGHTING: Sanctuary Villas retirees Kathleen and Glyn Hardy are refusing to sign off on their neighbour’s plan to shift a fence they say is dangerous. She had legal advice that if the Hardy’s signed approval for the fence alteration and it didn’t end up going where they thought it would, “we’ve got no comeback.” Find it 24/7 Check out eResources online Still trying to get your EQ damage or repair issues sorted We’ve helped hundreds of homeowners get what their policy promises.
