Legality of building a shed in our back garden
Without going into the long and boring back story (which I will if somebody wants more details) can somebody please tell me what the laws are concerning erecting a wooden shed on a concrete base in our back garden. We live in a small house with an even smaller garden. This is flanked on one side by a 2-storey wall of our (jealous and complaining) neighbour's house,his garden wall which is over 3m high and a wall onto another piece of land which is 2.5 metres high. We had a shed which ran along the 2.5m wall and the 3m wall when we moved here but it was not on the deeds. This we knocked down when we were led to believe we had planning permission to replace it with a veranda. When said neighbour found out he complained and it turned our planning had been recinded - they just hadn't told written to tell us as at that time we were living in England (!).Anyway, the upshot is we know we can't put a permanent structure in, but can somebody definitively tell me if we can build a shed that is the same size as our old one and abuts the 2.5m wall and the 3m wall (without touching the 3m wall - we have built another wall inside of that to keep the damp off his wall). It would be made purely out of wood but we would like to put on a tiled roof.Any answers gratefully received, or if anybody knows of an English-speaking notario specialising in this type of work I can speak to I would be hugely pleased as this is just proving to be a frustrating exercise in Italian bureacracy!Thank-you!
