I believe that there is a right to family life stated in this act. If this is the case can I use it against the yorkshire dales authority who wish to make an enforcement order against my positioning of my personal caravan on land that I own that is next to my place of employment. As I am contracted to live on site in a two bedroomed bungalow and have been for a period of over twenty seven years as part of my terms and conditions of employment for this length of time. My employer does not wish for me to site a caravan on his premises which I believe to be a fair statement. the grounds therefore that I believe Iam being treat unfairly is that as a full community charge payer I am not allowed to have the opportunity for my family ie two sons thier partners and so far four grandchildren or have both my parents aged over seventy who need thier own bedrooms due thier own medical conditions stay and reside with me and my wife together over a period of even one night where when the use a caravan could resolve this matter in due course or if needed as a neccesity of care
System of Law: EU
nothing as I have tried to be amenable with the enforcing officers. which is a waste of time as all they will quote is the 1960 countryside act for sites of less 5 acres against me which is stupid when i have informed them that i own just over 6 acres
