Rather than spend loadsamoney on tall trees or hedges to provide privacy from overlooking neighbours, which can be objected to by those neighbours, what about erecting screens (of dark mesh high on poles, for example)? In the UK, are there any restrictions on how high such screens can be and how far inside the boundary?

The maximum seems to be what your local authority would permit, so you would need to contact them. But, I don't see any reason it can't be further inside your own garden, if you want it.
i dunno how accurate this is but we were allowed to erecect a higher than 2m garden room as long it was at least 1m away from the boundary
I just can't imagine it looking any good.
Personally, I'd rather plant something.

The kind of trees required for privacy are extremely expensive

and, after you spend a fortune on trees, neighbours can object and have the, cut down
cant have them but down surely? they can cut them if they overhang their property, but only those bits? did you speak to the planning dept?
What about some kind of garden fencing panels and then growing climbing plants over it??
Question Author
Fence panels are restricted to two metres in height, even including trellis on top. I need far higher. Climbing plants don’t create much height, and they are destructive to the panels
Why r they restricted to 2 metres??

Asked the local councils, not me!
How tall are you estimating you need?
Is it that your neighbours can see into your garden from upstairs windows. If so difficult to solve without using some sort of tenting that would block out the sun as well.
you could always apply for planning permission for a taller fence (we just have)
