Like to seek opinion.

I'm planning to renovate my house. Problem is my neighbour and me can't get along. There's a wall that separates my area and his area. The wall is not tall enough,it's visible (head level)

Can the local city council approve if I built a wall with maximum height let say 3 metre or more? Does it make way for him to sue me if anything went wrong?

He's a nuisance but my family advice not to bring matter to worse.

I was told that the wall is belongs to both your neighbor and you.

And any changes onto the wall must be paid both of you.

Let say you build something like the link here

If the idea is from you, then you have to own the cost and build it perfectly on both sides. of course you need both party agree to do that.

Sure fail if one seeks to share costs.

I think TS should do a document and get it signed by both.

1. Detail the changes.
2. TS bears the full costs.
3. Free warrantee for x months.
4. Subsequent maintenance such as paint work individual cost, for the wall facing the respective owner.
5. No time limit on the consent. Subsequently no single sided permission to tear it down is allowed.
6. Signature.

Instead of building on the boundary, why not build the 3 meter wall on your side of land? Alternatively, could plant a row of white pine tree, which doesn't need local authority approval.

There's already a wall separating me and my neighbours. It's too low. My plan is tear down and rebuild a higher wall(max height allowed by local council.)
It's a dispute that can't be mended.because the neighbour is a moron. Likes to find trouble.

Because planning to to utilise it for planting and add in a small garden landscape. If the wall is too low that will find ways for the moron to create trouble again. I want peace and relaxation.
