Thanks for your message and yes I am willing to wait for answer
I believe that there is no right of access and that the actual road is adopted by the local council. It has been used by only one of the house owners to have fencing products delivered without asking us first, which caused bad relations between us, the last occasion, I was informed at my place of work while serving a customer that he had some pallets being delivered and walked out so I could not react.
As far as I know on 3 or 4 occasions to have deliveries dropped in their back garden by removing a fence panel which they installed, instead of the original fence, which had been getting old and we haven't replaced as no funds. If they had asked from the onset we would have probably said ok, what irks us is that they presume they can do what they want.
There has always been no access to all of the properties backing on to our road, as since the houses were built in the 1970s each resident has had a section opposite their property on their house deeds so as to prevent anyone using it for access or maybe built a garage. the road is taken care of by the local council. If you mean how long this situation has been going on between us then only about 6 months.
