    Anyone used this? Is it a criminal offense? Or civil law?

    Neighbours narrowed driveway down and artics are struggling to get through. Going up this morning to clear the way just need something to quote if old bill turns up. My right of way is clear on deeds

    Does it give a width? We had a track altered recently and had the width stated on the new deeds, 12' same as the gate. Avoids any future arguments.

    Just don’t turn it into criminal damage. Have a reason for what you may be about to do such as animal welfare rather than just access and because you are p1ssed off.

    My argument would be that the gates. entrances are an indicator of the size of vehicle expected to use access, unless it is an ancient byway with limited space due to dry stone walls/banks etc, I would expect that the law would favour you. Again it is in the detail, has your property always been an agricultural/commercial operation, if so then I expect you are in the clear, if however you have changed use and are placing a higher burden on the access then you may not be as lucky.

    That's how I read it. Seeing how self propelled is 10f 6 and we've been using one for 20 years plus don't see how he has a leg to stand on

    Daily access for milk tanker for donkeys years?

    I would certainly mention compo for loss of goods if tanker access is obstructed

    I would advise against confronting a neighbour head on anyway. At the first hint of opposition, say nothing, phone plod, and request assistance to prevent a breach of the peace!

  11. There is bound to be a reason the neighbour has acted like this, address the reason while you are at it.
