If they are preventing you from using your land as you wish, to ...

Re: Neighbour has right of way

Is there anything on the route that gives a hint as to the reason for the weight limit? E.G. Small bridge, side retaining wall or possibly utilities under the roadway.

Re: Neighbour has right of way

Re: Parking space

None of that makes the vehicle abandoned.
The landowner has no right to remove and dispose of it because that would be theft. The local authority or the police have authority to move abandoned vehicles. The details need to be passed to the local authority for them to deal with it.

Re: Parking space

The fact that it is sorned will mean the council will not consider it abandoned.
If it was brought on a flatbed then the question of whether it has or has not got an MOT is immaterial.

Re: Obstructive Parking

Well, for a start the 'H' is just a pretty bit of paint on the road. There is no legislation behind it at all. It relies on people not understanding this. If your vehicle is on your drive then anybody partially obstructing it migh get a ticket for obstruction. If you are trying to get on the drive t...

Re: Access to a ditch we have been maintaining for many years

There doesn't appear to be any mention of a mound that the hedge may or may not sit on.

If you have a ditch of a given width and depth, if you increase the depth, you will increase its width -that is an irrefutable fact.
I'm afraid it's not. Width and depth are not intrinsically linked. You can increase either without affecting the other

Re: Can I remove these trees?

Re: Landlord mentioned in the deeds.
Surely, the two freeholders are now the landlord. Upstairs is downstairs landlord and vice versa

Re: Electricity substation

But is there any legal requirement to bring the enclosure up to current guidelines?
If not then it's a case of you pay for the work that you want them to do. As it is their property then they get to decide the price and contractor.
