I have been using it on and off for vehicle access for 11 years. I really want to know what an accommodation road is; does it give me any rights. Assuming an owner will not come out of the woodwork can anybody else stop me from using the lane for access.; for example someone who does have a right of way.

OK Thank you
Thank you for your reply. It goes a long way to confirm what I have been told by neighbours. However, I'm still puzzled by the fact that it is called an accommodation road. This seems to go back to when the flats were built in the 1940's and possibly before. I wondered if that would strengthen my situation. I am seriously thinking of selling the flat in the future, after I have built a garage and would like to know about this. We have a very unpleasant developer in the area who has in the past tried to stop us using it. However, I am satisfied now that he has lost this argument as he has been told by the police that he can't stop others from using it.

Thank you. That is exactly what I wanted to know. I feel happier about going ahead to build the garage.
