Re: Barbed wire fence danger to child

Hi, I don't think we are ever going to agee about this. Perhaps the best solution would be for Islelassie to plant a yew hedge along her back boundary? I am not being serious. Actually, a hedge might be the best solution, especially if somebody would donate a few young sapplings, perhaps hawthorn. A...

Re: Within permitted development...but...

Hi,

The fat lady has sung.

But shouldn't the withdrawal of PDR have been mentioned in the "searches" when you bought the house?

So No.166 has a wide lane at the side, and Nos 166 and 168 have a wide lane across the ends of therir gardens. You at 170 have a narrow lane across the end of your garden. No.172 should have a narrow lan...

Re: Barbed wire fence danger to child

Hi, The human race is the only species that practices Survival of the Weakest I'm not going to argue about whether that is a good thing, or not. Whatever, the farmer has recently erected a barbed wire fence. The fence was not there when Islelassie moved into her house. She now finds herself with a c...

Re: Campervan

Hi, Some people may regard this campervan as an asset ...... it means they can park their van too. It probably also indicates that you have well heeled neighbours, aways an advantage. My daughter, in Bletchley (Milton Keynes) is allowed (according to the covenant) to park a caravan on the 15ft drive...

Re: Extension on extension on extension ... ?

Hi Pilman, I'm going to be pedantic here :) You said .... an outbuilding that can cover up to 50% of the entire garden area is now permitted development, And then you said ..... the extended building cannot cover more than 50% of the entire area of the property. Taking for example, a 400M2 plot with...

Re: Access widths?

Hi, Supermarket car bays must be 2.4M wide. No account seems to be taken of the requirement to identify an empty bay in sufficient time to approachint from the otherside of the "road", dodging pedestrians pushing trolleys. OT, but be aware that there are both car turntables to let you drive in/drive...

Re: Barbed wire fence danger to child

Barbed wire is a very ordinary material for agricultural fencing, and anyone buying a home which backs directly onto farm land should expect to encounter it. Hi Sudynym, I can't disagre with that statement. But do we expect to find barbed wire in an agricultural environment because farmers have tra...

Re: Barbed wire fence danger to child

Hi again

There is a lot of stuff about barberd wire on Google - BARBED WIRE LAW.

Er .... did you ask the farmer to enter your daughters injuries in his Accident Book? I assume the Mann from the Ministry checks it from time to time.

Re: Barbed wire fence danger to child

So don't complain next time insurance goes up again....... Or the time you have to queue in A&E Hi, After the first injury YOU should have been aware that there was a danger. But the law requires that property owners should be aware that children are not that sensible. Yes, you can keep your daught...

Re: I've made a mistake - help please!

Hi, Yes, you made a mistake. Personally, I would do nothing, let him "make the running". What is he going to do? Sue you? As soon as you start to offer to replace his fence, he will be in a position to "up the ante" .... fence of his choice, erected by his mates at whatever price they want to charge...

Re: Next door want me to pay for moving shared fence

Hi, The cost of erecting the fence was shared, I think it is joint owned, which I guess makes you both responsible for maintaining it. But the goon next door doesn't want to maintain it ..... he wants to move it. Not only that, he wants to move it is such a way that it will be making your garden sma...
