I would definitely check with your local authority, that sounds too tall and too close to your property. Sounds as if its a garage with storage above. I'd definitely think of increasing the height if your fence by using galvanised wires . You could mix winter and summer clematis, roses and ivy, there are all sorts of combinations. Look for fast growing climbers though or you may have to wait a year or two for the full effect.
