Thanks.

I'm afraid that under the new law you cannot either impound or clamp.

You can issue a fine to him although the practical reality is that he can refuse to pay it.

You can sue him for the exact loss his trespass is causing you. That is always hard to quantify with this type of trespass.

Another option is to erect barriers. They do not have to be expensive barriers. Literally any barrier across your entance is fine.

You can also use retractable bollards but that is expensive.

Can I clarify anything for you?
