This website is a voice for victims of unfair ‘Public Rights of Way’ disputes!

My name is Ann Scott and I am the victim of a Public Right of Way claim through my garden. Along with other friends who also suffer from this blight on their lives, we hope to help ourselves and others who find themselves alone in an unjust, unfair and archaic system. It will take us a while to get to grips with making a relevant and interesting web site but we are an enthusiastic bunch with much expertise between us….

KIRKLEES COUNCIL’S CLAIM ON FARMERS LAND QUASHED BY HIGH COURT CHALLENGE

KIRKLEES COUNCIL’S CLAIM ON FARMERS LAND QUASHED BY HIGH COURT CHALLENGE

In 2009 “off road” 4×4 vehicles and motorbikes started to try to drive through the Bradley’s Farmyard and dairy based upon advice of Kirklees Council. Attempts to stop them resulted in threats and eventually assault by angry drivers who claimed the route was public.  When questioned, the Council told the Bradleys that the Council had recorded, without notice, a public road through the middle of their small dairy farm in 1985. The Council said the Bradleys must let people through. This led to a David and Goliath battle involving two failed enforcement attempts by the…

They are protesting against Norfolk County Council and their local Parish Council, who they say, gave them no indication that such a thing could happen. Residents are angry that they were not given the chance to ‘have their say’ or warned of the possibilities during the five years that the Councils were pursuing a claim of BOAT ( Byway Open to All Traffic) as a continuation of Pockthorpe Lane. One resident said that he didn’t know anything about it until…

When you have Councils and societies promoting any form of public access regardless of legitimate claim, impact on individuals or cost to the public purse, it becomes an all consuming daily worry if you are burdened with a claim against you. You become powerless, with no control over the weeks, months and years this black cloud will be hovering over you. You find that people you have never seen or spoken to have comments and opinions about not only their…

Norfolk Public Rights of Way claimed by Dr L.David Ormerod MB BS MBA MSC FRCP FRCS DTM&H…..yes really…..

Mr Ormerod has also stated that he is the Rights of Way Officer for Swaffham but the present Swaffham Clerk didnt know that they had one. Anyway, Mr Ormerod has taken it upon himself to start claiming private land as a Public Right of Way or Restricted Byway. Land that is NOT ON THE DEFINITIVE MAP Unfortunately, due to the ludicrous Rights of Way system which allows completely bogus claims to actually be taken seriously, this will mean at least…

An Idea that won’t work! My Response to Norfolk Local Access Forum.

An Idea that won’t work! My Response to Norfolk Local Access Forum.

Have you heard of the 2026 deadline for using historical evidence to claim presently non existent Public Rights of Way? That’s another SEVEN years for claims to be registered and Access groups have already had the last few decades already.
