Re: Fallen leaves and fruit

Pity I was just interested in how your neighbour started creating all the trouble as Ive had my own fair share of neighbour problems, cameras pointing in my windows, superior censored looking down on me and the Mrs, that sort of thing. It can eat at you when you have got bad neighbours. You seem lik...

Re: Fallen leaves and fruit

I don't want to bore you with the history, but members who have read some of my previous posts (both here and on nfh.org.uk) will understand what a difficult and obsessive (I'd say mentally unstable) person he is; and I'm quite sure this is just a continuation of the low-level harassment which he s...

Re: Adopted sewers

They have just blocked the sewer again so we had the water co.s workmen round again. They lifted slabs okay. It was a black bin bag this time!! How did they manage to flush a bin bag. They need to start charging these people whoc keep blocking sewers

Re: Height of fence in front garden

OP is proposing a tapered height at the boundary, which will satisfy such concerns. Why will just tapering the height satisfy safety concerns? Apparently the sources you've researched don't quantify height limits based upon line of sight safety concerns, they just interpret the applicability of the...

Re: Height of fence in front garden

My interpretation is correct. This has been the subject of a previous thread here https://www.gardenlaw.co.uk/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=20018 in which I referred to the relevant caselaw which clearly states that "adjacent" excludes walls that do no more than meet the highway at one point. How can you ...

Re: Height of fence in front garden

You don't need PP for what you propose. You only need PP for fences over 1m where the fence abuts the highway. Side fences of the type you suggest do not abut the highway. I don't think that is right. When we built a side wall, we needed planning permission to go over 1m high within the first 2m fr...

Re: Adopted sewers

Thanks for the replys John and Hugh (sorry, John I missed your's originally). Yes, it seems reasonable that there are laws governing access to manholes. My query stemmed from the fact that: 1. Access is not obstructed . There is a laminated plan on show right next to the manhole to indicate which sl...

Re: Adopted sewers

Hello ukmicky. Thanks for the reply and sorry for the delay in responding. The slabs have never been permanent. It has always been possible to lift them to gain access to the manhole, although they were in place when the inspecter came before the sewers were adopted. I have two questions: 1. How wou...

Adopted sewers

This is a semi-hypethetical question: Three houses (call them nos. 1, 2 and 3). Nos. 2 and 3 have their sewers running under no. 1s land to a manhole also on no. 1's land. This then drains under no. 1's house and drive to the main in the street. About 25 years ago the LA adopted the sewers, at which...
