Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
Is there a proposal to stop parking please?
Yes and No! Three of three parking places have been taken up by the dropped curb. One of the forbidden places is outside my neighbour's dwelling and he had been told that he cannot permanently park there any more.
Ok. Has there been a formal complaint to the Council?
I pressed the Enter button to write another para but it all up! On the other side there are 5 parking places but not usable. At this time "gunge" of year falls off. After 2 days of it I was forced to re-park. The trees are Silver Birch which are loved by aphids. From the spring to early summer they exude some amber coloured droplets. Because my insurance company has told me that that whilst my no insurance claim won't be affected, my premiums will increase in the event of a claim.
Ok - have you made a formal complaint to the Council?
Your next question, I am preparing a claim to tje Local Council Ombudsman
Have you had a final response from the Council?
Yes. They reject my complaints and told me to write to the CLO
OK, you are going via the LGO good: www.lgo.org.uk
You can also seek a Judicial Review, that is where a High Court examines the decision to see whether it is legal and reasonable.
The Court can agree with the decision or remit it back for further consideration
But if you are going to the LGO that is your next step
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
Just to go back to my original question: can a Council suddenly review the use of this bay after 40 years of use for parking? Does my neighbour, who can no longer park outside his dwelling, have a claim? How do get a copy of this dialogue? I dare not press the "Enter" button here! I am 88 years old - so sorry about the slowness. And many thanks for your help. Kind Regards, *****
Can they review it after 40 years, if they own it yes.
You may have established a Prescriptive Right, this becomes after 20 years.
But the Ombudsman should pick up on that.
Does that help Leonard?
Merry Xmas and a Happy New year
