It is all too possible to round a corner on horseback and come upon a group of cattle with no prior warning -this WILL result in a horse being badly spooked at best, bolting at worst -it is only a matter of time ........... read more
Frensham Common, Surrey
Tony Barnett writes to the Chief Constable, Surrey Police
"I request a full examination by Surrey police into my complaints of fraud by the National Trust and Waverley Borough Council."
Says Tony Barnett
I have on more than one occasion requested police action to investigate the actions of solicitor for Waverley Borough Council Damian Bainbridge and the solicitor at the National Trust Tim Butler for fraud under the 2006 fraud act, "false representation, failure to disclose and abuse of office/ position" on each occasion I have been refused, fraud is fraud and should be investigated.
Butler states that Waverley council have a lawful of Frensham and ponds, for which a lease agreement have been created, there is no land registry documents to show freehold status of the land and waters.
Subject to the leases from the National Trust, Daniel Bainbridge, supported by the trust applied to the planning inspectorate as owners for consent for developments, also subject to the leases, Daniel Bainbridge has drawn up lease agreements with Frensham angling Association, where £7,150. I believe this lease is joint and shared between trust and council, the angling club will not give a full statement. The sailing and boating clubs will not give any details apart from saying the pay rent to council and trust.
The statement now from the council is that they do not have freehold status to the common land or ponds, but still demand,,as "landlords" payment to fish.
I hold copies of all of the lease agreements, but no evidence of rents demanded.
I also hold all the information from the trusts archives, which consist of plans of the area, and statement claims to ownership on each of the two copies, no evidence to show pre-registration of titles to pre-date 1189, no conveyance document.
There is a registration, but declared as for information purpose only, and therefore is not conclusive evidence, this document I have copies of, held by Helen Gilbert at Surrey.
Legislation supports the lawful registration of rights to commoners, the leasing of those rights breaches the legislation.
I request that a full examination by Surrey police into my complaints of fraud by the National Trust and Waverley Borough Council.

We moved to a Shropshire location a year ago having surveyed the local OS map and noted the significant number of bridleways around the property. Sadly the map appears a total fiction. Scarce any of the bridleways are usable ........... read more
