Blocking of Natural light and air by neighbour - Raising his podium level by 10Feet/My flat's lintel lelvel
My Flat is spread across 35 feet in South side and is the main source of natural light and fresh air.
We are peacefully living here with the natural passage of air and light since we stepped into this apartment.
1. While things stood this, a new gated community Construction adjacent to our apartment has come up with the construction of swimming pool in WEST Corner adjacent to our compound wall without any setbacks.
2. This new gated community's compound wall is above our Ground Floor flat's lintel level and is above 15 feet from my apartments ground level.
3. When I spoke to that new gated community builder he claims, the road facing towards them is at a height of 10 feet and hence we raised our podium by 10 feet and the compound wall is 5 feet.
So, as per our plan and guidelines, the compound wall is only 5 feet and he says, we dont have a right for objection.
4. The road facing towards is community on the front side may be 10 feet., but, not all sides.
By doing so, many flats/individual apartments in Ground floor are not getting light and air.
a. No setbacks in one corner.
b. Raised podium height by 10 feet and compound wall by 5 feet, there by blocking natural light and air.
Please guide on how to handle this situation/what can be done from our side?
Please let me know if builders can raise the podium height as per his wish or will there by any rules?
What are the guidelines for two adjacent gated communities interms of construction of a compound wall, heights and setbacks?
