Re: Neighbour restricting access

Hello, may you please advice me ? I live in second terraced house with rear shared access path, my end terrace neighbour who rents her house raised the gate and put a padlock on so I can not access my garden. Also I have no contact details to her landlord to discuss it further. I have tried politel...

Re: running services to garden across/over neighbours pathway.

We need a plan because the way that I am reading it is that the garden and parking space are totally seperate from the house by the neighbours path, I. E no wall forming a side to the garden.

Re: running services to garden across/over neighbours pathway.

Because power from the existence by house has to route along neighbour's path but this has been refused.

So that man is taking the wrong person to court as it is neither council land nor public highway.

Re: General binding rules: GBR small sewage discharge to a surface water

That will work providing you can find a bank account to hold the money that makes no charges during that period. Bank fees no matter how small are considered significant accounting transactions and would cause the company to lose dormant status. The idea is good but needs to be done carefully https:...

Re: General binding rules: GBR small sewage discharge to a surface water

Just gave a bit more thought to the above posting and decided that once the company became legal owner of the land, you could agree to rent the land for an annual cost of £13, which would be the same amount needed to retain the company in existence with a clause in the rental agreement that this ca...

Re: Resurfacing a Right of Way

There are inaccuracies in the text at that link. Must not park in disabled parking spaces? Unless it they're s a public highway and there is a TRO signified by the presence of a disabled parking sign on a pole next the space then anyone can park in a space that only has the paint on the ground. Resi...

Re: Parking and obstructions

And the chances of a parking enforcement officer venturing away from high vehicle areas and being seen in a suburban street or cul-de-sac to deal with a single offence is infinitesimal small.

Written law is one thing. Practical application of it doesn't always achieve expectation.

It would need to be somebody who does it consistently and initially the worst they will get is a mildly stern letter.

Re: Parking and obstructions

Unfortunately H lines are just conscience prickers and have no legal force. Think of them more as street graffiti that the council makes money from.

Re: Landowner rights to opt out of Permit Parking Scheme.

I think the council has 2 hats in this situation. Under the Highways Act 1980 then as the Highways authority they have the power to adopt and maintain the road. This doesn't apply as they do not intend to adopt it. Under RTRA 1984 they are the Traffic authority. Under this, their power applies to AL...

Re: Boundary Wall Rights

But if the garage is being removed then that wall will also be removed at the same time as the rest of the garage as it is part of it, or the neighbour might leave a portion that is the same height as the boundary wall. However that will be a discussion between the 2 of you as they will have no duty...

Re: New fence obstructing vehicles

If you actually read BRs then access for a vehicle front and back is not a requirement so I doubt whether it was a condition of the easement. As long as the furthest point of the building (not curtilage) is within 45 m of a vehicle access suitable for a fire tender, even though it may be through the...

Re: New fence obstructing vehicles

It must be because I can show you streets of terraced houses built before 1960 that only have a 5ft path between the backs of adjacent streets. Is the 45m AROUND the building or through? Pick any mining or industrial town and you will see numerous examples of this. How many houses don't even have re...

In the recent fire, was the Fire Brigade able to use this access?
Immaterial. Lots of houses don't have rear access for vehicles by design. If FB needed water to the back they would run hoses, not take a tender down a narrow lane.
