Signing away all rights to contest planning application on adjoining field?

Hi all. After 2 years of looking in Geneva we've finally had an offer accepted to buy a house.

In the acte de vente there is a clause saying that we will not oppose the construction permit for the house planned to be built on the adjoining field (originally owned by the same family but now bought by the estate agent who handled the house sale).

Except there is no permit application yet nor have we seen any plans, we only have a very brief verbal description of what the estate agent plans to build. And honestly he seems slightly untrustworthy and doesn't have the best reputation now I ask around. We have no problem with the build if it matches what he described but is it ethical/legal to ask us to sign away any future recourse rights on this? And how do we handle this without losing the house purchase?

Foolishly we went with the notaire he suggested, which now concerns me, but I'm hoping they are as neutral as they are supposed to be!
