Have you contacted the merchant regarding this?
Sorry I sent that by accident. I will opt out for another expert.
1. When accessing onto a public highway or road, it is the approval from the Highways department of Limerick County council which in law operates to expand your right of access to two cars as opposed to one car. However, to widen it to this extent you still need planning permission. A right of access is different to a right of way. You currently have a right of way. However, if you want to expand the right of access to two car width you need the approval of the authority which owns the public highway. This does not expand your right o f way. You still only have one right of way. However, the access is then expanded to two car widths if you get planning permission and approval from the Highways department of Limerick County Council.
2. You also need to realise that in law, you own up to the midpoint line of the roadway which you access onto. The public highway merely has been taken in charge by the Limerick County Council. However, you need their permission if you want to expand your right of access to two car width.
