Re: Cherry tree roots going under neighbours drive.

Playing Devil's Advocate, maybe he wants to get his land renovated in some way (as he has removed the conifers) and would just like to ensure that there is no root disturbance 2 or 3 years down the line? It might be cheaper to ensure any potential root problems are dealt with before damage occurs. W...

Re: Gardening according to the goddess of fertility & abunda

I read this last week and come back to it today because it really makes you think. I know it is meant to be whimsical but theres satire at almost every turn. Liked the ref to Soylent Green movie - chilled me to the bone when I saw it in the 70's.

Re: Parking and obstructions

Ah. I hadn't thought of :lol: that!

The angry bang came and they had to wait for half an hour. And they know why they had to wait, so maybe they'll think twice in future (but I'm not banking on it).

Re: Parking and obstructions

They are at it again. Plenty of space to park in front of their own drive, but blocking mine instead when I came back from work. I didn't bother asking them to move, I just parked in front of their drive instead. Now waiting for an angry bang on the door, but they will have to wait as I'm having my ...

Re: Neighbour's quadcopter camera over my garden

I have seen this topic before, but I have only just read the second part. While I wouldn't want a drone invading my private space, Rosenbergs attitude is completely out of order. He came here for help. People have been helpful to him and all of a sudden he turns on them like they are the source of h...

Re: Squirrel damage to roof

To be fair to the OP, he/she hasn't said that they believe it's the LA's responsibility to prevent squirrels from getting into the roof. They just seem to be looking for a solution to the problem. We still don't know how far the branches are projecting into the OP's air space.

Re: Squirrel damage to roof

I'm no naturalist, but I'm surprised the squirrels eat lead flashing. You could always install a different sort of flashing. I once used aluminium - it is quite soft but I don't think it's as soft as lead. It's not as pliable either so is more awkward to work with (hence roofers tend to dislike it),...

Re: Parking and obstructions

Great minds think alike. I don't know enough people with work vans etc., but as I needed to have a skip on my driveway over Easter, and thus had to park on the road ... well you get the idea. They clearly don't like being inconvenienced themselves and were not happy when they have had to (rather gru...

Re: Parking and obstructions

Thanks for the replies everyone. Yes, I thought the H lines wouldn't be enforceable - but the fact that the exist at all at least reflects that fact that it is not considered to be good behaviour to block someone's drive. Mr Sheen. You say there is no suggestion of intent to stop me leaving, but I t...

Re: Parking and obstructions

Hello Mac and Mr Sheen, thanks for replying what’s your definition of “often” and “numerous”? Every week for the last 5 months. Random days and times. They have usually gone by about 10:30pm. you mention that you “usually” get an apology and that they do move the obstruction - so does this mean they...

Re: Parking and obstructions

You can only control property in your control and roads are not. Unfortunately there is nothing that you can do in relation to parking on a public road as long as they do not block your egress from your driveway . Sometimes the Council or equivalent put in parking restrictions but if there are none...

Re: Parking and obstructions

They were actually parking ON your drive? That hasn't happened in my case, fortunately. If it had, I'd be straight on to the police (although if past experience with them is anything to go by, I'm not sure it would do any good). I hope you managed to put a stop to it permanently despair.

Parking and obstructions

I know this is not strictly garden law, but I wondered whether anyone can give me any tips on how to stop neighbours (one neighbour in particular) parking in front of my drive. I live in a road which is fairly long and perfectly straight - about half-way down. All houses have off-road parking, which...
