Yes does the Council own his house?
And do you wish the Council just to give you the land?
But who owns the drive?
Ok - only the Council or Land Registry can tell you this, I can't sadly.
But you need to write to the Council and ask for clarification on the position within 14 days.
If you do not get a satisfactorily response, then you should write to the Chief Officer of the Council. That department will investigate the actions of the Council and report back to you.
If you are not happy with that response then you can complain to the Ombudsman. They are free, independent and can examine your complaint for free. Their website is located at: www.lgo.org.uk
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
You need to check your tenancy agreement, it may say you need permission.
You need the Councils permission to lower the kerb yes,
Does that help?
Of course. You can ask for me personally.
Can I help with anything else today?
