we were told they are obstructing a highway and a public right of way.also they are saying they have been repositioned,then moved back.this is rubbish as they are concreted into the ground.they have finally admitted this is our land,even though the highways man insisted it belonged to highways.there is no footpath and the only people to pass these barrels are customers of the craft centre currently there.there was no contact with me until last week,with only the tenant receiving correspondance from them.someone came before but seemed happy with the situation and we heard no more.
NOT YET.TOLD WE HAVE 2 WEEKS TO REMOVE THEM OR THEY WILL SERVE AN ENFORCEMENT NOTICE.
YES THEY HAVE BEEN THERE 14-15 YEARS.THEY ARE NOT BLOCKING A RIGHT OF WAY,BECAUSE:A)THERE IS NO RIGHT OF WAY,AS IT IS A DROP KERB ENTRANCE TO OUR PROPERTY,AND B)THE BARRELS ARE A METRE FROM THE ROAD.IT HAS BEEN CONFIRMED IN AN E-MAIL THAT THEY KNOW THE LAND IS OURS.EVEN THOUGH THE MAN WHO CAME DOWN,SAID IT BELONGED TO HIGHWAYS.
in a nutshell do you believe we are in the right?.does the 10 yr rule regarding permanent structures apply?.
