Rights of Way
It is unusual for a firm of solicitors to have a specialist in rights of way, and other public access to land. We at Dyne Drewett have one, in Jonathan Cheal, well known for his practical experience, his public speaking, and his bow-tie.
Of all the issues which most concern farming businesses, the question of management and control of public access is right up there, but few know where to go for advice. Look no further.
Existing linear routes, the threat of new ones or upgrade applications, diversions and extinguishments, permissive paths, “village green” claims, coastal access, CROW rights and the new CROW (woodlands and river banks): all these need care, forethought, and specialist advice. Buy the right experience.
Private rights of way, too, call for great care to get right, especially where changes of use are concerned. The overlap between public and private rights is itself significant, and can be a cause of some confusion.
That is why specialist advice is necessary.
