charge on land, not registered

Your views would be appreciated. A landowner voluntarily registers land in 2010, providing Land Registry with a chain of conveyances and deeds going back a hundred years. There are no charges on the land registered, no limitations, agreements or restrictions of any kind. Wind forward nine years and ...

Re: Development of a studio built in a garden

Contact your local elected Councillor. Get them to visit and see for themselves. Then the Councillor can persuade the officers to take enforcement action.

Re: Neighbour obstructs Private Right of Way

I have asked the OP whether the 2/3 acre 'field' where the workshop is to be built is attached to the dwellinghouse From what the OP said earlier, I was under the impression his house and this workshop were within one piece of land, but that the workshop area is up a very steep slope. The only prac...

Re: Neighbour obstructs Private Right of Way

There is mention of 'a standard car' in this thread, and suggestions that a car cannot pass along a 2m wide track. I suggest that there is no such thing as a 'standard'. And there seems no shortage of motor vehicles that could be used - any motorbike - any small car from the 1950's - any Land Rover ...

Re: Parish Councillors

Why not involve active community members with business interests in the village along with working professionals as well as residents? ..... It would be good if these sort of people became councillors, but we can't force them. You mention that the public and the parish clerk can attend as watchdogs...

Re: Parish Councillors

All planning applications have to be heard by the Planning Committee. The ones that don't aren't planning applications but are permitted development overseen by Building Regulations. Wrong. If we ignore the development done under permitted development we are left with the proper Planning Applicatio...

Re: Parish Councillors

jencast, as a parish councillor myself I see this from the other side. I know an awful lot of people in our town (are they my cronies?) and I feel I can be fair with all planning applications we comment on. Knowing when to declare an interest is tricky. Basically no one oversees parish council decis...

Re: Outbuilding over 50% garden size-help!

You will need drains for the original build (rain water) just make sure these are big enough and go into the main foul water system not to soak-aways. Wrong. In many areas the rain water MUST NOT go into the foul water system. Too much water would overload the sewage works. All streets built in the...

It depends what you mean by 'easier'. A simpler process? Or a better chance of success. Only apply for planning permission if it doesn't come under permitted development.

There is plenty to dispute!

The landowners right to gate is in dispute.

The landowners right to lock could soon be in dispute.

The OP's duty to close the gate could become another dispute.

Re: Outbuilding over 50% garden size-help!

october, you can spend money on consultants if you want, but if the development doesn't fit within permitted development then the usual next step is to submit a planning application. You can do this yourself, though there is a fee. Draw plans yourself, fill in the form, pay the fee, and see if you g...

Re: Outbuilding impact on conservation area

Yorkshire 72, you say during the planning process, so I assume this is not permitted development and we are talking about an application. Yes it should be considered, whatever the size. It is usually the loss of visual amenity that is considered. If the public have a pleasant view of the building/st...

Re: Replacement of wall with a fence

geoffGR, the school has a responsibility to support your land, but they have no responsibility at all to provide you with a wall or fence. They could just leave the boundary open.
