Says Naomi SmithIt 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

Yateley Common, Hampshire

Yateley Common is up for enclosure
yet no notice of the legislation process is being followed

"Let me stress, the works on common land does not meet with a lawful and honest application."

Says Tony Barnett

Says Tony Barnett Recently there has been information where the police, our source to having our rights to the law protected, but have let the innocent down.

The news at the moment is about a more serious neglect of duty but from small acorns mighty oaks grow, this nevertheless is total neglect of duty so as to protect those with a status within government establishments (council offices)

The criminal acts I wish to bring to the attention (staying within article 10 of the european convention on human rights) is fraud, wrongful arrest and false imprisonment, yet the matters are civil and nothing to do with the police, but as the protection of local government takes priority, innocent members of the public are left with a criminal record.

Common land and all other rights of lawful access is my field for which I have been arrested and held in detention because the CEO of local authorities have made vexatious/false representations to the Chief Constable for my arrest stating that I am destroying their property (common land) by removing enclosure from the common or that I am preventing unlawful occupation by those that the council support.

Evidence to show that the land has no owners and that the land is being described by an other name makes no difference, arrested, DNA, photo, and finger prints, put before an equally bent magistrates court and found guilty, appeal to the crown court and you lose again, each time one gose before such courts the bent judges state that this is outside his jurisdiction because he is crimnal but the matters before him are civil, he is bound to have the matters put before the correct court (article 6 provides that one is intitled to that article).

The matters should never have been before the courts because article 7 provides that there is no punishment without law,there is and will not be any law where unlawful works have been visited on common land, pre 2006 I was before county courts, district judges supported the claimant because of the close ties with the council, but on appeal to a circuit judge the last decision was over ruled.

I am still are engaged with common lands up and down the country where rights of way over common land, forestry(which is common land) and open country access points are in danger of being lost through theft by local authorities by claiming ownership, the claim to ownership is made to the planning inspectorate, they too support the council and associates ( corrupt conservation charities) consent is given, (intervention has stopped two consents, but pins will allow further applications even though they know it will be false representation)

The point I am trying to make is the applications and consents are fraudulent, money gained from natural england is mortgage fraud, HLS is for agriculture on freehold property, not common land even if there is a lord of the manor, these are meant to be self supporting.

The applications for funding by the "conservation charities" is to the landfill subsideries and lottery funding, yet, Parliament ruled that this money is for good causes,RSPB were given £900,000 by heritage lottery funding, for "works" on Hazeley common, it claimed that the owners had given consent, yeah right, but the money is for other projects for the community, butterfly conservation were given £571,000 for works on common land they claim to have purchased,from who?

Applications for this funding in all cases must be subject for examination, the landfill is that the project must within a 10 mile radius of a land fill site and that evidence is disclosed to show ownership by the applicant or consent by an owner of the land giving consent, this gets waved away, we allow certain leway say entrust and by those that obtain funding such as grantscape for the conservation charities and without examination of the applicants, suceed in geting the money.

Now that is fraud, evidence to show is given to the police but nothing is done, the fraud continues so do the arrests or cautions.

All common land will be stolen this way and there is only one way to bring this to the attention Cameron is by being pro active, your MP will tow the party line, MP Pickles is responsible as the communities and local government, the policing and justice minister Damian Green need bringing to book, taking letters to No10 gets you no where, done that with collegues, got nowhere.

Yateley Common is up for enclosure yet no notice of the legislation process is being followed, I wish them luck but to show their determination to uncover the fraud is not clear, I have tried to help but a lot of time is being spent talking to rangers, they, like the council have no jurisdiction, this I believe is showing the applicants they are unsure and consent will go uncontested by most, those helped in the past have removed or informed that they intend to remove, has had the work stopped or that the district councils understanding that their's is the right and have stood back.

One decision not to try and stop the removal of the works from the common land was when a horse trying to negotiate the cattle grid lost its life, let me stress, the works on common land does not meet with a lawful and honest application.

Says Linda WrightWe 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
