I understand from an agronomist is a notifiable weed and should be removed
There is no such thing as a notifiable weed in the UK. Himalayan Balsam is a problem in that it produces lots of seeds, esp along rivers. Otherwise it is quite harmless.

The roots of Hornbeam are also shallow roots so they should not interfere with the buildings foundations.
Agreed - same for Beech (as long as both are kept as hedges)

Re: Boundary dispute

they intend to claim the line of trees as thiers under pre 2002 adverse possession rules (because they have exclusively maintained them for 10 years prior to that. They have offered nothing to the LR to refute my surveyors report. Ignore claims for adverse possession as without foundation. Cutting ...

Re: Boundary dispute

You asked about removing branches damaging your property and now you mention removing whole trees. I would say these are different things. If the land was open plan how can she claim adverse possession?

Re: Boundary dispute

There was no fencing between our plot and the neighbours on one side, but a 200 ft line of conifers, and 2 large old poplar trees..... she will claim the line of trees, and conifers, as hers under adverse possession under pre 2002 rules. How can she claim adverse possession if the land was not fenc...

Re: court case reported in "press" re 12" land grab above and more underground

If you look online you can see that the new houses (semi detached) are equidistant on both sides of their neighbours and more interestingly if you look at the flats previously on the site, the path does look (and I appreciate this is not a scientific method) to be similar in width as now. From what ...

Re: Council frustration

That being so, it does not prevent you from negotiating with the council that the roots should be contained to prevent further expense to the tax payer. A lot of people get a bee in their bonnet over trees if they do not own them. They tend to go way overboard and obsess about that tree. It is rath...

Re: Council frustration

Trees close to structures should now be planted in an approved planting pit to prevent root encroachment. I would try and negotiate with the council or their tree officer for them to place a concrete barrier that may prevent further root encroachment damage. Ash die back however, may eventually com...

Re: I bought a house with half a garden ! And un-registered land

https://photos.app.goo.gl/roxFRGtLooGk89X79 You need to check the wording of the deeds as it is odd that the plot has a hashed line to the north when all other gardens are full length. It suggests that you have at least some access right to that land, de facto if nothing else as no one else can acc...

Re: Question Regarding Permitted Development with Fences

One thing to consider are Burdens in the Deeds of Conditions or more Title Sheet. These may prevent fencing in front gardens, though if some already have fences this may mean that they are unenforceable or at least leverage to say they are.

Re: No boundary between neighbour's annexe and my garden

They also said the neighbours could come and clear the guttering every so often. Are the gutters overhanging the boundary? Is the boundary clear? The windows sound like they were added via permitted development (obscured glass, up openable unless above 1.7m high) but PD does not extend to building ...

Re: Do I need planning permission for a boundary fence?

The obvious thing to do is copy what the neighbour has done and put up a 1m fence to the boundary of the land and path...but how long have they had that fence up as it is not in the birds eye image? From the photos you have cut down hedging which removed privacy and you want to incorporate the side ...

Re: Lattis fence panels with teram added to them.

"The fence height is 1650 to the top then he put this trellis between the slats, now it stands 1900. But when you step off my decking it's over 8feet. But still under 6 feet from his side.
