Clarendon Boston 34 design considerations

neighbour's camera or motion sensor?

Correct, not a camera. You can relax knowing they’re not spying!! 😊

So your setback is what, 4.5m, maybe 5m back from the street that cars drive along? BS.

They won’t be from the curb. It’s probably a master plan of the estate before footpaths and roads are shown. Your 450m2 is yours, then there will be a footpath…

Which way does it fall? If it falls from front to back I’d be more concerned with drainage and street appeal and would just avoid altogether.
