Boundaries

Where green spaces are bordered by houses there can occasionally be boundary disputes. We don’t share protection documents with anyone other than the landowner so if you want to see a copy you will need to approach them. We can’t get involved in boundary disputes and as land registry plans are not 100% accurate in terms of showing the boundaries it may be that a land surveyor needs to be engaged to help resolve a case of alleged encroachment for example.

In some cases sites are not protected in their entirety, for example, a facility leased to a sports club may be excluded from the dedicated area, as could a piece of land with a phone mast on or a utility sub-station. If this is the case then Fields in Trust have no jurisdiction over the land so if you’re not happy about something you will need to approach the landowner.
