Policy Regarding Replacement of Property

Roedd y cais yn llwyddiannus.

Dear Caerphilly County Borough Council,

Please provide a copy of the council’s policy and/or a statement of the council’s legal responsibilities for replacing private property that has had to be demolished or removed by the council as a result of the council’s requirement to gain access to a neighbouring property. For example, a shed has had to be demolished in a private garden to gain access to a wall in the neighbouring garden which is a council property.

Yours faithfully,

Craig

Dear Craig Roch
 
FREEDOM OF INFORMATION ACT 2000 - INFORMATION REQUEST
 
Thank you for your request for information received on 21st February. We
have considered your request and enclose the following information -
 
Please provide a copy of the council’s policy and/or a statement of the
council’s legal responsibilities for replacing private property that has
had to be demolished or removed by the council as a result of the
council’s requirement to gain access to a neighbouring property. For
example, a shed has had to be demolished in a private garden to gain
access to a wall in the neighbouring garden which is a council property.
 
The Council has no specific written policy concerning the council’s
legal responsibilities for the council’s requirement to replace private
property that has to be demolished or removed as a result of the Councils
requirement to gain access to a neighbouring Property.
 
In order to gain access to undertake works at properties the Council seeks
permission to enter land from the freeholder/leaseholder to
inspect/undertake works.
 
The Council also relies on Rights retained in specific deeds to Properties
(if applicable) and statutory powers seen in the Party Wall Act 1996 and
the Access to Neighbouring Land Act 1992.
 
We supply this information based on your original request.  If this is not
what you wanted or if you feel we have not fully understood your request

If you have any queries or concerns or are in any way dissatisfied with
the handling of your request please contact us.
 
Yours sincerely
