Both number 25 & 26 Medway Place Have decided to block off the footpath and claim that area as there own which looks bad also each house is claiming about 8 to 10 square metres if freehold land. They have a gate either side. Often people walk that way from the bus stop they really can’t now unless they go through two gates and number 27 and 28 would also have to go through there gates if they want access from the front. They have a small garden area in front of there houses but now both houses have decided to claim the footpath as there own property. It shouldn’t be allowed to happen. I know the postmen aren’t happy about it and often people mention it to me going up the footpath/cycle path with my dog and I just say don’t know how they have got away with it. I think the fences should be at the end of there garden next to the footpath if they want a fence but not claiming approximately 8 to 10 sq meters of land each. I live nearby and i am also freehold and what they’ve done isn’t right and should he seen to
