Despair - when will you stop with your 'only solution' crap It is patently untrue, as two other 'solutions' have already been offered. There are mini-diggers which will fit through a house doorway and conveyors which will move spoil to the front of the property.despair wrote:Your only solution

I think the access to neighbouring land act refers to you using next-door's land to access to repair your buildings. So it is not applicable to help you build an extension, or to maintain your garden.leahellis3 wrote:...we have looked at the Neighbouring Land Act 1992 and it seems to be right for us but we're not sure.
You have no right to use their land. Win their agreement by charm or £, or look for smaller machinery you can bring through the house.leahellis3 wrote:We have recently bought some land behind our garden, we have taken down the fence at the back of our garden to join the entire thing. We have now applied for planning for single story extention on our exsisting garden and plan to use the land as our new garden. However, to do this we need to dig out our exsisting garden as it is risen and we need it to be totally level and our only access to the land is through the pub car park next door to us. Up until now they haven't minded but they are beginning to get petty and want to refuse us access to the car park which means we can't get a digger in to get to our land to dig out the garden. We haven't done anything wrong, the land which we bought was previously overgrown and used as a dumping ground, since we purchased it we have taken away all the rubbish put down new grass etc. We don't really know where we stand at the moment, we have looked at the Neighbouring Land Act 1992 and it seems to be right for us but we're not sure. Does anyone have any advice?
Do you know how the piece of land behind your garden was accessed originally?
Does it have any rights of way mentioned or referred to in the deeds or other documents?
You may probably not be able to get a full-sized digger down it/them, but some smaller-scale equipment (if still valid access).
