When maintenance work on a council dwelling requires access to a neighboring property

The request was partially successful.

Dear Birmingham City Council,

When maintenance work on a council dwelling requires access to a neighboring property
(e.g. Scaffolding support which crosses a boundary).

1.
Could you please tell me:
How it is established that the property requiring access is council or private?

2.
Could you please tell me:
If it is established that the property is private, then what procedure is followed
to contact the owner?

3.
If the procedure is to write to owner with an access request.
Could you please tell me from December 2007 until December 2017:
How many requests letters have been sent?
How many received a positive response?
How many received a negative or no reply?
How many times a court order was obtained to enforce access?

4.
If there is no procedure to contact the owner or no records kept, then could you please tell me how disputes are resolved?

Yours faithfully,
G Allans

That period is now well overdue.
