Re: Neighbour's hedge

The Department of Environment are the prime controllers of pesticide use and the legislation applies to commercial AND domestic use. Even the use of salt is illegal as it is not an approved herbicide, and this is exacerbated by its use on somebody else's land. This is a long way from the OP and cutt...

Re: Vehicular ROW dispute - claim of false deeds!

We are becoming involved in a confusion between the Civil remedy for fraud and the criminal. The two are separate and issues about misrepresentation on the SPIF are not an issue necessarily. The Fraud Act is about a persons actions ie using a false plan to attempt to extinguish part of a Row in orde...

Re: Vehicular ROW dispute - claim of false deeds!

Mac

The occupant of No 4 has attempted to increase the value of the property by limiting the RoW and this also could reduce the value of No 3. This could thus be an offence under the Fraud Act 2006 and as amended

Re: Party Wall demolished in Listed Building

I presume you had a survey undertaken prior to purchase. If this was not mentioned in the report then you may have a case against your surveyor. You are right re owners repair responsibilities as the liability is a strict one whereby the faults existence requires owners action even if he/she was not...

Re: Gates on footpaths

In Central Bedfordshire where I live it is quite common to see kissing gates at each end of a public footpath that passes over land which is directly accessed from the public carriageway which has no footpath alongside it where it runs from the village alongside the fields on each side of the road....

Re: Gates on footpaths

The phrase disabled accessible is widely used to refer to wheelchair access. Ambulant disabled persons are happy to have the same access as other ambulant persons

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 she...

Re: Parking and obstructions

Just to be precise Parking in front of a dropped kerb is an offence "Part 6 of the Traffic Management Act 2004 repeals section 14 and gives all local authorities in England with civil parking enforcement powers the ability to take action when a vehicle is parked alongside a dropped kerb in a Special...

Re: Culvert Installed by HA

Given that the spoil was for flood defence work then the EA would be the client for these works and the main contractor for the works is ultimately responsible for the actions of the contracted drivers who drive off roads and cause damage. Hence EA would likely require the flood defence contractor t...

Re: Bonfires on Allotments Objected to by Adjacent Householder

Anthracite I know where you are going - For me incineration on open fires has little to recommend it. In other countries we find many community heating schemes where combustible waste is used as furnace fuel for the production of electricity and local heating. In the UK many LAs use whinrow sites to...

Re: Bonfires on Allotments Objected to by Adjacent Householder

Personally I think the Allotment Management should be providing on site composting or bulk waste collection so that residents do NOT have to suffer smouldering bonfires throughout the night during the summer. For horticultural and garden wastes a composting solution is far more environmentally frien...

Re: Development of a studio built in a garden

I think the LA are being nonsensical when they will have a structural Engineer with powers to declare structures unsafe and require work to be done at LA expense and recharge the owners if necessary. I think that together with HSE, who have powers to demand entry and can get police to enforce access...
