Furious vegan demands neighbours stop cooking meat on barbecue

A Perth woman is so furious with her neighbours' choice of dinner she has taken her gripe all the way to the Supreme Court.

Cilla Carden is a vegan and told Nine News Perth she is fed up with the constant smell of her neighbours barbecue.

"I can't enjoy my backyard, I can't go out there" she said.

The massage therapist claims that her neighbours cook fish so frequently and the smell is so overwhelming and that it stops her from enjoying her Girrawheen backyard.

"All I smell is fish," she told 9News.

Vegan Cilla Carden (right) said her neighbours constantly cook meat on their barbecue and she can smell it.

Ms Carden is also upset at the noise of her neighbours' children playing basketball, claiming that they "bang the wall at anytime," and the noise wakes her up.

"The kids with their basketball, banging and vibrates this part of the house," she said.

The other neighbours are also getting on Ms Carden's nerves, claiming that the smell of their constant cigarette smoking takes over her backyard.

Ms Carden believes the smells and noises are premeditated and has taken her complaint to the WA Supreme Court.

"It's deliberate, that's what I said to the court," she said.

Nine News reports that the case was thrown out of court and one of Ms Carden neighbours, who wished to remain anonymous, released a statement to the network.

"Ms Carden's demands were proven to be not reasonable and indeed were to the detriment of the other owners ability to enjoy their lots in a reasonable and acceptable manner," they said.

Ms Carden vows that she will return to court so she can enjoy her backyard once again.
