Firstly, is there a cost for a response to my question?
JA: The answer cost depends on the issue and time to respond. You'll see the exact amount on the next page and can decide then. It's way less expensive and more convenient than any face-to-face visit. Where are you? It matters because laws vary by location.
Customer: Gloucestershire
JA: What steps have you taken so far?
Customer: Fruitless discussions with the Parish Council,
JA: Is there anything else the Lawyer should know before I connect you? Rest assured that they'll be able to help you.

My garden backs onto Parish Council allotments. I would like to put a gate through my rear wall to access the allotments. The other 2 neighbouring properties have enjoyed such access for many years. The Parish Council has refused my request with concerns, I think, over easement. It seems very petty to me but are they within their rights to do so?

I don't want a call thank you. and l don't want to spend £44 when l think l already know the answer.

I'm signing off now. Thank you.

I am afraid they are within their rights to do so yes. In essence, it may be the neighbours already established access over their land through long use but that does not mean the council has to allow you to establish such rights. I trust this assists
