I think i need to provide you with more information. The right of way is directly outside the boundary of my house at this boundray a new slip road has been constructed. The right of way prior to the construction of this road was very valuable to me in the sense that i had walking access to my lands at the northern side of the right of way. As there is now a public road on the right of way outside my house and i understand that the land owner would have got compensation for this loss of property the right of way was never extinguished and is still registered on the folio i was approached by the land owner to see if i would relinquish my right of way and refused so aside from the actual value of the right of way should i have also received compensation from the local authority for the loss of right of way or as it was never extinguished if they now choose to extinguish the right of way eventhough i dont own the land on which the right of way stands would i be entitled to something?
