I live in a very rural area of Suffolk. We have a minor derestricted

Resolved Question:

I live in a very rural area of Suffolk. We have a minor derestricted road running past several properties whose verges alongside the road are privately owned and maintained by the property owners. Do these folk have the right to place obstacles on their verges to protect the area from vehicles and tractors over riding the verges?

Hello. You need to check if the verge is designated as public highway (it can be, even if privately owned). You can do this by contacting the local county council. If it is, you can't place anything on it. If it isn't, the owners can do as they please to prevent over running. Best, wb
