We have congratulated Dereham Town Council in Norfolk for its robust action in defence of the lovely Badley Moor Common.
The council has written to the landowner, Mr Anema, asking him to open up the blocked access to the common.
The gate leading to the common has been locked for more than three years and the adjacent stile has been removed.
The public has the legal right to walk and ride over the common and this lawful access has been denied by the landowner’s actions.
We have written to Dereham Town Council to congratulate it for taking up this crusade in the public interest.
Landowners must not be allowed to get away with such unpleasant and unlawful actions, and it is excellent that the council is prepared to pursue this.
