Re: New septic tank rules - do they apply to old tanks?

Wishful thinking perhaps! I can't find anything in the rules that describes the system we seem to have. We are an isolated house in rural Wales, on the upper slopes of a wooded valley with fields at the bottom bordering a small river about half a mile away. There is no tank. The pipe goes into the g...

Re: New septic tank rules - do they apply to old tanks?

It seems obvious to me - if it complies with the rules in force when it was installed, then you don't need to do "anything else". The "anything else" can only mean confirm that it is pre 1983. Ours just disappears into the ground, somewhere. It's an ancient system, nothing has ever been done to it s...

Re: Neighbour's quadcopter camera over my garden

I clearly stated the reason why it was a pleasure for me to read Rosenberg's posts; this was due to his correct use of the English language, nothing else. I'm not so sure about that. For example, his sentence " Do you feel like you are being manipulated at all; like your thoughts aren't entirely yo...

Re: Private messages stuck in outbox

You are right -the PM has gone, moved from "stuck in Outbox" to Sent. So that's how it works - messages remain stuck indefinitely unless released by the intended recipient's response to the notification. It's useful to know, but still seems a bit odd - like the postman leaving a note to say he has a...

Re: Private messages stuck in outbox

................meant to add, the above is how it has always worked for me, I'm assuming it is the same for other members? Not for me - exactly as the OP describes. I tried sending a PM to arborlad, pressed Send, at the top of the message it displays a Sent time, but the message remains in my Outbo...

Re: Neighbour's quadcopter camera over my garden

I haven't read any of this saga before now, but noticing that it has now been running for very nearly a year I thought it might deserve a scan. I thought FilthWizard's recent comment " Please note that unless you can find a way to come to some kind of understanding with society in general you will r...

Re: Our building work, rights of way and neighbours

The standard procedure near us when forestry contractors need to block narrow roads in order to extract and load timber is to build a temporary lay-by or small diversion road nearby, obviously by agreement with the landowner, where they park their lorries off the road, and then to reinstate the fiel...

Re: Gates on footpaths

Round us the local authority has been putting in a lot of new metal "kissing gates" - the kind that have an enclosed swinging gate so users have to pass through one at a time. They are certainly not useable by wheel-chair. They are usually spring-biased so they close on the side that prevents a shee...

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?
