Heathfield House Latest News (Oct 17)
As we all know the road adjacent to Heathfield House (ex-Iceni) has been closed since the building went into administration. My own research into this matter suggests that the road should never have been closed as it can be classed as an ‘easement’, which provides a right of way for vehicles. I have sought legal advice on this and although we have a very good case to pursue it there is very little impetus from any authority to take ownership of this and get it reopened. Attached below is the document I prepared for submission to SCDC and Saville Estate Agents. Martin Johnston (HRA Secretary). RIGHTS OF WAY CREATION
