You can cut to boundary subject to statutory protection, offer back arisings and dispose of in a responsible manner if offer is declined.

There is no statute law which grants the right . Its common law ,law which has come about through centuries of cases that have come before the courts in England and Scotland ,wales and a few other places dotted around the world which are governed by UK courts. .
