Re: Tractors and telehandlers

There's no specific prohibition on carrying loads on a front loader but there is quite a bit of guidance in the form of "should" or "shouldn't". Farmers carrying bales are generally considered to be safe though it is strongly recommended that the spike is covered/protected when there is no bale on. ...

Re: Dropped Kerb put in - No Permission from me

Subject to certain exceptions it is illegal to park across a driveway with dropped kerbs. The main exception is with the driveway owners permission. If you find your driveway obstructed call the council parking enforcement department and your neighbours may well find themselves getting parking ticke...

Re: Covenants - understanding wording

Just build your shed! Covenants are not enforceable by law, all that could possibly happen is that whoever imposed the covenant would be able to sue you for losses incurred by your breach. Since the restrictions in the covenant aren't exactly clear and it would be difficult to establish any losses a...

Re: Land Purchase with overage Consultancy Required

I'm sure there are a number of posters on here, a couple spring instantly to mind, who would be able to offer advice. Overage clauses vary tremendously though, so it would depend on what your intentions are with the land you wish to purchase whether the clause was acceptable to you. Generally they w...

Re: Can granted right of way be widened by prescriptive clai

The thought that occurred to me is that it is quite likely that the farmer will still be able to get his combine harvester along the track but it will have to be done in 2 pieces. The main body of the combine is unlikely to be more than 3m wide, it is the cutter head that makes the machine wide and ...

Re: What is the legal definition in planning for residential

I took some advice and messaged Pilman Good advice! If the enforcement was just to stop any rights under 4 or 10 year rule and they left me alone that would be a different thing, i do not bet, but i am sure they wont leave it at that imo. I think that the enforcement is simply designed to prevent w...

Re: What is the legal definition in planning for residential

I do think, however, that true "residential" status will be very difficult to achieve. You will be able to prove occasional use over more than 10 years but this on it's own will not guarantee residential. You will almost certainly be able to keep the current status quo and be allowed to retain the f...

Re: What is the legal definition in planning for residential

I think what you have probably got is a situation where the council are attempting to prevent you from claiming change of use in the future without going through the new prior notification process. To prevent this they send an enforcement notice. You then will either defend by saying the property i...

Re: What is the legal definition in planning for residential

It is quite possible that the council will take no further action. If they have issued enforcement proceedings then the clock has stopped on the 10yr/4yr clock regarding any possible residential use. They might be happy that you are not living there and the enforcement notice now means that you will...

Re: What is the legal definition in planning for residential

The stables were built in 2005, presumably for equestrian use. Are there any conditions in the planning permission restricting their use? Is the adjoining land agricultural or equestrian? As you are aware equestrian use is not agricultural but what often happen is that permission for stables is gran...

Re: What is the legal definition in planning for residential

If the council are insisting that the use is residential then you will need to be able to prove 10 years continuous use. You will need a sworn statement from the previous owners and there needs to no large gaps in that use. If you can prove a material change of use then you are correct in that it be...
