The MOD in Faslane, Argyll and Bute is denying Robert Hamilton

This answer was rated:

The MOD in Faslane, Argyll and Bute is denying Robert Hamilton access to a road that would allow him to build on some of his farmland. The MOD have over the years allowed others, all who are from England, to use said road for the purposes of building, could this be deemed as discrimination as Robert is Scottish.
The MOD own the 300M of road but Robert has a letter dated from 1972 that states the MOD would act as an agent for Robert's father for Dumbarton Council to adopt this 300M, the MOD failed to act on this and they refuse to acknowledge this letter now.
Does Robert have a case?

Thank you for your question.

What evidence of discrimination is there. The general position is that a landowner can grant rights of access, or not as the case may be, to whoever they like. Just because Robert is Scottish doesn't necessarily mean that there is discrimination unless there is other evidence to that effect.

From your narrative I do not think that Robert has a case but I am happy to discuss further.

I hope this helps. Please leave a positive response so that I am credited for my time.
