Privately owned woodland
The woodland in question is alongside housing and has been recently bought by a private individual who is telling all that it is his land and he will do as he wishes with it.
So far he has erected a fence around the wood with 2 strands of barbed wire around the top which we feel may be dangerous as it is also next to public land and footpath which is used by children as a play area, also he has made a track through the woods and is now using this as a motorbike, quad bike track and this in places runs within just a few metres of several houses . There is no planning permission or application in place for this and we would like to know legalities of what has been done so far.
Hope to hear from you soon Alex
