Our neighbour is claiming the right of way as she has been using it since 1986.
We have never limited her access (we have lived here since 2003) so we are not objecting to her application.
She's claiming a right of way for a right of access on foot only to, and to place ladders and step ladders on that right of way.
Putting a planter at the end of the path would not limit her access to the path other than meaning that she has to walk around the planter, we are not trying to limit her access, just have our front garden the way we would like it!
