RIGHTS OF WAY
We deal with disputes over private and public rights of way.
Private right of way disputes arise in relation to both commercial and residential land. The rights themselves often arise by long and uninterrupted use which may be the subject of investigation and debate. Other areas of dispute could be the extent of the right (eg. pedestrian, or car etc) and intensity (where there has been development of the land benefiting from the right of way is it lawful for more people to exercise the right?).
The increased value of country properties and privacy has resulted in a growing number of challenges to claims of public rights of way. We can make representations to local authorities and represent clients at public inquiries.
