Hello and thanks for using Just Answer.
I am Al and am happy to assist you with your enquiry.
Could you give me a little more information please. Does your neighbour have a right of way over your drive, and if so, do you have the wording to it?
Kind Regards

for aston lawyer

no not over my drive, my problem is that at this moment i or a second car can park at the foot of my drive without affecting any one else with his proposed new drive this would not be possible as i would be blocking his drive.

we live in an L shaped corner and i can only get one car on my has worked perfectly for fourty years because he has never had a drive on his property .

Hi Ron,
Thanks for your reply.
Well, in short, your neighbour has no right whatsoever to utilise your drive! As the drive in your sole ownership, you are entitled to use it as you wish to the exclusion of any third party ie your neighbour.
At the end of the day, if this is going to cause a problem for your neighbour, he will have to go back to the drawing board as regards ***** ***** new access.
I hope this assists and answers your question.
Kind Regards
