Says Naomi Smith

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

Yately Common, Hampshire

Why the proposed works are wrong

Says Tony Barnett

Says Tony Barnett The objection to the occupation and application is because the land is registered common land, checks will show that it was registered under the 1965 CRA as a section 9, which means that the land is not freehold, it could not be registered as crown or demesne land for Quo Warranto 1189 and therefore not registered under the land registration Acts 1925 and 1936, no title deeds exist, there should be no difficulty in refusing the application

My advice to you is that the common land is a public amenity, it is also a commoners heritage and as such no one may enclose or deny the registered rights, which is "prairie" grazing and also to eastovers and other rights.

In this law on common lands, ancient rights of access, conveyance and the 2006 fraud act, which all meet at the same roads end, as far as I know, no one else will get involved, solicitors will not (well up against me anyway) neither will the courts come to that as its a very complex law.

The application reads that the area is close to the airport, but as my challenge to the airport staff for full disclosure, it can be taken that the buildings and flight path should have been removed post WW11.

The other meeting as is explained by PINS to for a site visit, this should not take place, it is registered common land (even the Queen may not develop the waste/common land on the Royal estates) the meeting for this is 8/11/2017 you will need to approach PINS with your and friends planned visit with them and BCA.

We have saved a lot of common lands and other rights, but residents need to become involved, put up a good fight and demand that proof of claims be disclosed and that the legislation on common law are also respected.

Yes PINS and applicants have agendas that do not match the rights of inhabitants of areas, PINS say they are autonomous but they had instructions prior to the quango replaced the Commons Commissioner which was to give consent to all applications regardless, also as the quango is not versed in conveyance law they are prevented from adjudication, but as applications to council planning is also only provisional until evidence is provided, nausea is felt by the public concerning the rapid theft of ancient rights to the countryside.

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
