Hi Mac,

So if a farmer allows somebody an easement across the middle of a field, it becomes a highway, and fences are restricted to one metre high? And the same farmer is restricted to one metre fences along the A1, to keep his stock in, and the plebs out? Surely not?

Hi John,

the "way" as described would not be a highway because it is not for public use.

a highway is a "way" the public have a right to use.

therefore, if the same farmer dedicated the "way" as a PROW then (assuming it passes through his garden) he would need pp to erect a fence +1m beside the "way".

Kind regards, Mac

When 'amenity' is mentioned in this context, it's either to do with the land itself - a planning condition that the land is left open for it's amenity value, or the visual amenity - not in keeping with the street scene. Sounds like the latter.

There is nothing you can add between the current fence and the highway to make it compliant in the planners eyes, this is a very common situation that planners are well used to, indeed, adding a second fence fence will do nothing for your security - you'll just be placing a step there for an intruder.
