I tend to agree,OTOH we don't know the relationship Milner has with his neighbour.

On a practical note if the neighbour really is only worried about paint chips on the assuredly shared boundary railing a length of foam pipe lagging attached to either the railing whilst the lock is attached or to the lock itself,though I suspect there's more to it than that from the neighbour's POV.
I cycle therefore I am.

... the local may not extend beyond the wall, ...

A good reason to check for CAMRA evidence? :wink:

There are reasons lawyers make megabucks from a good boundary dispute.

If your neighbour is prepared to cut the lock off the railings then they're not worth having as friends. Is the neighbour also
objecting to the bike leaning against the railings?

Buy a job-lot of cheap locks, and see how long it takes him to tire of trotting out with a hacksaw every morning?
