We also deal with disputes regarding public and private rights of way.
Private right of way disputes arise with respect to both commercial and residential land. The rights themselves often arise owing to long and uninterrupted use which might be the subject of debate and investigation. Other subjects of dispute could be the extent of the right (e.g. pedestrian, or car etc) and intensity (in case there has been development of the land benefiting from the right of way, can more people exercise the right lawfully?).
The number of challenges to claims of public rights of way have increased manifold owing to growing value of country properties and privacy. Our team can represent clients at public inquiries and make representations to local authorities.
