It does not have to be Public land for a TPO, you do not even need to own the land on which the tree is sited. If the tree man at the council feels it affords ammenity to the area then a TPO can be granted We have just recently had a TPO put on a Beech tree at the bottom of our orchard as our dear n...

Glad Jeds has made a sensible response in this post - It must be so frustrating for him to see how waring neighbours expect the surveyors to be batting it out on their behalf. From my current experience,as jeds says - this is not the case. Once apponted, they make an award on what they see as the co...

Dawn - I suspect there is more to the refusal than being beyond the curtilage to your garden. We are currentley applying for permission to build a store/stable block on a similar type of land to yours - i used to keep my horse on the land and conveted an old outbuilding to a stable. Our original app...

Take some comfort from the fact that The PWA is designed to help you build rather than let your NFH give you a hard time - yes you will have to pay for his party wall surveyor, but an award will be drawn up and he will have to stick to this. He cannot unreasonably delay you as he could find himself ...

more than 20 metres away and overlooking is not going to be a valid planning objection.

Why should the OP accept the dish over his property. Im sure there are plenty of other wall space to fix the dish, just because it is more convenient for the installation company to place it oversailing the OP property. We had a similar situation with one of our neighbours, they wanted to oversail o...

Have you tried your local councils web site - they may, like ours file applications and drawings on line enabling you to view them. Failing this have you visited the planning offices - you should be able to view the plans there or for a small fee take a copy and read at your leisure. As the developm...

here we are having a moan because they cannot force the owners into lowering the height of their wall for the applicants benefit! I don't think I was having a moan - i stated that the planning will be dependant on meeting current design manual standard for splays etc. I understand the regulations v...

something else to bear in mind is - do you live in a conservation area. You may need or the neighbour may need permission to lower the wall.

Don't hold out any hope of that from the highways - the reason i say this is we have a similar situation. We cannot meet the design standard for visibility splays onto the road- therefore our application to build was refused on grounds of highways safety. The highways cannot force the neioghbour to ...

I do understand the police attitude - they cannot be seen to endorse the system position as it would be very easy for you to adjust after they had inspected it ( not that you would - but others may do) As long as you have complied with the law i wouldn't worry about it anymore. As I have said to you...

Understood. Our Neighbour included half hour orchard in her planning application. When we pointed this out to the council - they were not interested, even though without this land she would have covered more than 50% of her garden.

point taken, but would like to say our three dogs all have collar and nametags and remain on leads at all times. I love my dogs but understand that other people may not.
