A Perth woman who took her neighbours to the Western Australian Supreme Court over her frustration for their deliberately letting the smell of meat and fish they were cooking drift into the backyard of her home has been slammed by her fellow neighbours.

Cilla Carden appeared on 9 News Perth to vent her frustration over her neighbours, saying that she'd do anything for peace and quiet - but a judge says that there's nothing he can do. 

"They've put it there so I smell fish, all I can smell is fish. I can't enjoy my backyard, I can't go out there," she told 9 News.

But the Supreme Court Judge and the State Administrative Tribunal have taken the side of Cilla's neighbours, and have dismissed her case.

Her request to appeal the decisions has also been denied.

Ms Carden says she won't give up on her fight and will return to court soon.

However, following her appearance on 9 News Perth, Carden's neighbours have since planned a "community barbecue" outside her home.

More than 24,000 people on Facebook responded to the proposed event outside Carden's home, prompting a warning from WA Police.

The event page has since been removed.

"It's really sad what people are doing, there has been a lot of malicious and nasty comments," Ms Carden's lawyer John Hammond said.
