Recently purchased a new house and moved in. The neighbor's are extending their house which backs straight onto our back garden.
Basically it looks very high that even the ground floor will be high than the fence and overlooking our back garden (Let along the upstairs).
Anything i can do here?

There are clauses in part 4 of the Victorian Building Regulations relating to overlooking & overshadowing neighbours windows and 'private open spaces'. These should have been taken into account for the building application approval. If you have concerns the local council will have a copy of the lodged drawings.
