Says Naomi SmithIt is all too possible to round a corner on horseback and come upon a group of cattle with no prior warning -this WILL result in a horse being badly spooked at best, bolting at worst -it is only a matter of time ........... read more

Common lands under threat of enclosure

"Enquire why your MP or elected councillor has not taken measure to eradicate this crime"

Says Tony Barnett

Says Tony Barnett When candidates stand for election they must do so with a clear conscience, how many though disregard that demand, how many are in collusion with the council and others that make false representations and hide information that would prevent them standing?

Common land theft and using the land as collateral to gain funding from an equally corrupt source is mortgage fraud, yet it is allowed to continue,if the candidates are what they claim to be honest and above reproach, do they not state that their first task is to tackle the fraud and corruption, get those committing these crimes dealt with through the courts.

It will be easy to prove that the crimes do exist providing the laws set to protect the innocent are used, these are to be found in the European Convention on Human rights, article 6 to be precise, yet no solicitor that one engages will follow your directions, the courts will not allow you to have those rights.

If, for instance, a judge had his conscience pricked and allowed the article which would mean that full disclosure of evidence, your rights to examine or have examined and to allow one to examine the witness's against you in an open court with reporters and the like, the entire council can be dismissed and ordered to pay cost's.

The involvement of PINS, the land registry and all that are involved will also be or can be prosecuted and registration created by false representation destroyed, none of the land registry documents created for common lands where the Commons Commissioner judged that no owners could be traced (this information came from the university of north Wales and from clerks to the council in 1968) and disclosed to the Commission for registration of Common lands other than waste lands of a demesne lands of a Lordships Manor, the lands being stolen by the help of courts, MP's, local elected Councillors, with the p[olice under instructions to arrest anyone removing the ulawfully placed impediments.

The applications for land registration does not follow procedure, no evidence to show ownership to pre-date 1189 can be disclosed therefore the application should not be accepted, but it is, the common lands where no owners can be traced are open from all points of view for unimpeded access, who then has the rights to make grants of easement or deeds of grant? no one does, but the registration authorities had the "unowned" common lands vested in the council for protection from unlawful occupation and criminal damage.

The vesting however, gave the registering authority no jurisdiction, the decision of the Commissioner and the registration of rights are held by the authority and provided for in section 3 (2) of the act shall be made available for inspection by the public.

A lot of councils do not keep amended the registers and in a lot of cases require an FOI and then say under this and that section of FOI you may not access the registers, an FOI is not required.

The common lands now under threat of enclosure were not included in the lands registration acts of 1925 and 1932, they therefore are not freehold, may not be conveyed or legally occupied, will not carry any insurance policy and may not be enclosed or used for any other rights not specified under the registration.

I would suggest that a full examination is made, enquire why your MP or elected councillor has not taken measure to eradicate this crime and why, when standing the circumstances were not part of his/her measures to serve the electorate.

Says Linda WrightWe moved to a Shropshire location a year ago having surveyed the local OS map and noted the significant number of bridleways around the property. Sadly the map appears a total fiction. Scarce any of the bridleways are usable ........... read more
