Thank you for getting back to me I am happy to wait for an answer to my question - Alan
Hello Alex thanks for your reply - We opened the cafe in 2011 andhave put tables and chairs out since day 1. In April this year problems began since May we have not put the tables and chairs out for fear of reprisals and court injuctions being taken out against us.
At a recent council meeting it was agreed that no one owned the land the surface and the services that run underneath it are repaired and maintained by the various property owners who front onto it as and when required. The chairman of the councilcommittee described it as common land.
Thank you for your advice it has given me confidence to pursue thsi matter further with the parties involved.
