good morning. I live in Wales, so Welsh rules need to be used.
In 1958 land near me was acquired by the council from a private individual in order to build a by-pass dual carriageway. a small parcel of this land was unused in the road scheme and is now 'waste land' owned by the council. I need to use this land for road widening associated with a small housing development. The highways department have approved my scheme but the council estates dept want to ransom me for £50000. can they do this or can we have the land as it was originally acquired for highways use?
I'm happy to wait,
