Any truth in the rumour that Baxters Field group are facing legal challenges from a local estate agent ?

All I know is that Baxters Field is potentially under threat. I'm not going to name the estate agent

Without going into too much detail, the said estate agent lives in a house bordering on Baxters Field and believes he has right of access to the field via a garden gate. The Baxters Field group quite rightly dispute this.

Maybe a gate is not so bad , we could all go for a quick dip in the pool , I can see this going in the ice cream direction , I think he should let it go before he puts a spanner in his own works ,

Thankyou Baxter's Field Company - this link seems to explain it all without naming names. Good luck to you!

Interesting that the estate agent isn't named.
What is the threat, exactly? Is that said estate agent might annexe the field?

Seriously? This is a thread which initially suggests baxters field is under threat, but turns out to be about whether 1 person can or can't access it from their garden?? It's not like it's a quiet news day!!

From reading the report, it seems that the owners of 4 properties are claiming a right of way from the northern boundary of the field to the gate in Paddock Lane.
They must want to use it as a short cut to somewhere!

I am curious to know if any of these properties contributed to the Community fund that bought the field?

That was all I could glean, ACT. What I couldn't figure out was why this is such a huge problem that lawyers (and their big pay-packets) should be involved to sort it out? I also wonder why the name of the estate agent involved had to kept a secret.

It's bullying tactics of a small local charity by the four properties, making Baxters field enter a legal fight that is a massive financial drain on the groups resources.
If there is a right of way through the four properties to the field I hope they are prepared for people traipsing through their gardens from The Avenue. Neither bungalow that occupied the site of the four new properties ever had right of access to Baxters.

agents - an end of terrace becomes a semi detached, 2 bungalows become 4 houses etc. Surely the deeds of the properties have any rights of access laid out.

Have I got this right? A previous owner of a property on the Avenue MAY have had right of way or access and the new owners of properties that have subsequently been built there think that that right has passed to them on the purchase of their properties.
That's quite an interesting legal conundrum imo. I wonder if the former assistant county secretary reads this forum? He's got years of experience in rights of way matters, lives locally and is very public spirited. If he has the time and inclination, he could be a great help to the Baxter's Field Company.

The more community minded amongst us will be pleased to know that the same people who saved this space for eveyone's benefit are the same people who voted to ensure that this silly nonsense should be challenged. It is a shame that residents already enjoying the benefit of their neighbours generosity do not feel the need to be a little more generous themselves.
