the council brought in the scheme and everyone has to pay up.
I read it that originally you had opted in, and that some householders had declined to do so.
So it's just like any other residents parking scheme - unless you have your own off-street parking, you have to pay for a permit.

Re: Landowner rights to opt out of Permit Parking Scheme.

therefore, the council are taking monies for a service which is not fit for purpose, I didn't read in your original post that the council make a charge to those who subscribed to the scheme. It can't be compulsory to subscribe to a parking scheme if you don't park there - what about people who don'...

No, they were on the pavement, not the highway.

The pavement is part of the highway, I think?

I would also like to know if there is a roadway to the otherside of the wall in the photo,
There's something parked there - the back of a builder's skip just poking into the picture?

Re: Front boundary moved by 12”

My neighbours extension is now coming to completion thankfully. I thought you were objecting to the neighbour pinching part of your access drive and building on it? Now you seem to be thankful it is completed for some reason. If you wanted to dispute this you should have taken legal action the mome...

Re: Resurrection of right of way.

Is there a question buried somewhere?

Something with a question mark would be a clue :)

Re: Parking on ROW - Private road

If you want to make a point by being annoying you could wait until the neighbour's car is away and then park there yourself. :)

Re: Private access road - resurfacing a section.

The tarmac part I wish to block pave over isn't my land, I wish to incorporate it into my driveway I'm confused. You said originally: "The area of tarmac in question is of no use to anyone else who shares the private road other than myself as it sits within my boundary". If it sits within your boun...

Re: Let's see if we can propose a better way of dispute proposal

Before dismissing the idea out of hand it might be worth comparing the situation with other areas of dispute, equally complicated, equally subject to legal pitfalls, but nonetheless sometimes benefitting from unqualified commonsense as an option at an early stage to secure agreement before escalatin...

Re: Public bench overlooking my garden

If there is a scenic view one way and your garden in the other then clearly it is either a mistake or some joker has unbolted it from its concrete anchor and turned it round. That said I've seen new benches sited looking straight into a hedge, or buried under a pile of gravel the council then tipped...

Re: Neighbours fence damaged my patio

If your paving starts to slip on removal of the fence it suggests it was being supported by the fence. That is surely bad practice - the paving should have had proper support and not rely on a wooden fence to buttress it.

Re: Rights of way and animals

The driveway is used by tractors and trailers every week for both the farmhouse and my barn. I should have thought a driveway to a farmhouse would have been used by all kinds of animals ever since the farm was built. Try taking a herd of cows along it twice a day and see whether he minds the mess. :)

Sorry, but I can't get beyond the fact that somewhere there is a conservatory and someone put a toilet in it. Haven't the neighbours complained?
It does seem a bizarre thing to do. Presumably it is partitioned off in one corner? What have you done about the glazing?
