We have maintained an area of grass abounding the edge of the road next to our house on a small private development for over ten years. The area is approx 2 feet by 6 feet. It abuts our drive which we would like to extend the width to park a small "smart car". Would we have a legal right to it because of this?
Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you.
Is the land fenced off or do you exclude all others?

No the area of grass is open with no fence or wall around it. It is level with the road which was adopted by highways dept from the developer, Crest Nicholson. The area to the side of our drive is in total approx 6 feet wide, which narrows to two feet by 6 feet long ( it is crescent shaped following the curve of the road) we own half the width by half the length. It is only a narrow crescent of grass that is just outside the boundary edged red on our conveyance plan.
