This is the order
Order Ref: ROW/3220614
These are quotes from the Inspector.
“a right of way is not stopped up simply by the fact that it is built over.”
“Considerations relating to the Human Rights Act 1998 (“the 1998 Act”) are not engaged in relation to an Order of this type.“
“The criteria which may be considered under the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981 are strictly limited;”
“it is not possible to interpret the legislation in such a way that it is compatible with the European Convention rights incorporated into the UK legislation by the 1998 Act.”
“Concerns regarding a petition and the response of the Order Making Authority or the way in which the decision was taken to make the Order, are not relevant to this decision.”
“I can only determine the Order before me on the evidence that has been submitted. I have not relied on the petition as providing evidence as it lacks detail of any individuals use of a route for this purpose.”
“The law does not allow me to consider such matters as the desirability or otherwise of the route; alternative routes; privacy; potential effects on property values; security or health and safety.”
“ It is clear there has been much concern for both those who would wish to see a right of way recorded and those who would not, which has also involved the Office of the Local Government Ombudsman. Whilst I have sympathy for each side of the argument, I have not taken account of such issues in reaching my decision.”
“Since the confirmed Order would affect land not affected by the Order; not show a way shown in the Order; and, show a way not so shown, I am required by virtue of paragraph 8(2) of Schedule 15 to the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981 to give notice of the proposal to modify the Order. This gives the opportunity for objections and representations to be made to the proposed modifications.”
This is not justice!
This isn’t even common sense!
SO LETS SPEND A FEW THOUSAND POUNDS MORE OF TAX PAYERS MONEY ON A STUPIDITY!
