My sympathies with the balcony problem - that's a tough one, and the regulations as they are currently aren't really going to help. I think your best bet would be to ask your neighbour (or write her a letter), if you and she could decide on regular times when you each get to enjoy the balcony separately. Make up a story about your health if you have to! Consider putting up more of a partition e.g. a lattice you can grow a creeper on, between your and her side. Rest assured that although it's unpleasant, you are not getting a lot of environmental smoke this way. But you still shouldn't have to endure it.
