Access to 4 dwellings go through a shoppers private carpark

Customer Question

Access to 4 dwellings go through a shoppers private carpark every night they put up barriers to stop access. These have to be moved every time to go to or from dwellings. Are they aloud to put barriers up as emergency services would also have to move barrier to access and they are heavy steel barriers

What exactly would you like to know?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
Can we stop them using barriers so we can have access without having to physically move one every time as I am already a bad back person and have slipped my disk twice
Expert:  Jo C. replied 5 years ago.
Im really sorry but you cannot.

At least, the barriers cannot be such that you are unable to gain access if you have a right to park there. That would be denying you access to your legal rights.

But they are entitled to put barriers up that stop others gaining access with no rights to be there.

I do realise its unattractive for you but, in fairness, their intentions will be to stop others parking there unlawfully and thereby encroaching upon your space.

Sorry thats probably not the answer you wanted but it is the position that you have and I have a duty to give you truthful and accurate information even though its not what I want to say.

Hope this helps. Please rate my answer OK SERVICE or above and I can answer your related questions.
