Customer Question

The local Water works has bought a portion of the neighbouring arable field and gained planning consent for construction of a soak away lagoon,roads,footpaths and perimeter fences which cut off a regularly used (soon to be registered )footpath. When we try to gain concessions about the type and height of the external perimeter fence, they claim they can't do anything because of the restrictions placed on them by the previous land owner. There is also a buy- back clause. I've obtained the land registry details,March 2015 but can only see the old covenants. Where would these new ones be? any help gratefully accepted Pat Thorpe

If the new terms of the sale are in a private agreement between individuals and a plc can you view them?If the covenants say " fences to separate the same from the footpath of the road or roads------------ not to exceed 4ft 6 inches from the surface of the footpath." Is this then over-ruled by the planning permission on the grounds of "securing the site"?
