Re: Dogs, fences and boundaries!

It was this one www.gov.uk/control-dog-public Earlier in this thread you posted: You are not allowed to let your dogs roam free because they are then not under your control. You were wrong. The link you just posted doesn't support what you said earlier. The offence is having a dog dangerously out o...

Re: Dogs, fences and boundaries!

The fear of it doing is sufficient under the new rules to consider it dangerously out of control

Re: Fence erected at entrance

Op needs to check council byelaws. A number of councils have made it an offence to drive over a verge or footpath except where a dropped kerb has been provided See the first post on this thread. Regards Well, it wasn't extended toward the fence, which means op has a lot more space to manoeuvre. And...

Re: Fence erected at entrance

You can take your own action in the courts if it obstructing the highway . You could threaten to do so to the council if they don’t act. It may spur then into action Even if its obstructing part of the highway that isn't designed/modified for vehicular traffic I. E. The grass verge? I don't think t...

Re: Fence erected at entrance

As far as I can see, the encroachment onto the highway is about 10 inches covering part of the depth of the grass verge.

Are you saying that you need to drive over the grass verge outside your neighbour's house, rather than stay on the paved area to access your drive?

Contact your local MP if it is causing you problem s. That is if you have an MP who takes notice of his constituents' queries.
Councillors might take more notice if MP broaches subject.
You will have to wait until the 13th for an MP unless they are a cabinet minister

Re: Dropped Kerb put in - No Permission from me

It's where parking has been decriminalised and is enforced by the council.

So a special enforcement area can be a complete county (Cheshire West & Chester being an example)

Re: Dropped Kerb put in - No Permission from me

Except that the neighbour is one of the owners so technically has permission,. I doubt a CEO would want to get involved.

Well if they injure some poor resident in their current speeding disregard for life its likely to cost the poor resident a lot more in terms of long term disability than it will cost these ignorant oafs who may well not even be insured
Why do you think the new neighbours wouldn't be insured?

Re: Front Garden Path/Fence

I don't understand the people who are saying that the neighbour doesn't need to use it. They have the right to use it. There are a myriad of posts on here where it is made plain, and the law backs it up, that a right of way is a permanent feature unless you can get it removed through the proper lega...

Re: Dropped Kerb put in - No Permission from me

1) If the dropped kerb affects a 'shared' drive, surely my neighbour should have obtained my consent first before giving the works the go ahead with the Council ( the Council should at least have checked with me or sent me a letter ) ?. 2) Can I have the 'raised kerb' re-instated by the Council con...

Re: Front Garden Path/Fence

The path is a private footpath as defined in the plans. The definition of a 'Common Facility' is a private drive or private footpath. Para 13.2.6 gives everybody the right to use the common facilities. Therefore no 21 (and all other houses) have the right to use the footpath Therefore a private driv...

Re: Front Garden Path/Fence

The neighbours don't have tarmac. That is the parking space belonging to the house next door but one to the OP. You may find that ALL the houses in that row probably have a right of way along that path ETA Looking at your deeds then if every other house has the same then they all have a right to use...
