About Me

Hey Jude ...there's a song there somewhere:lol:

Well done on a fantastic job! Can't believe the site -  it is amazing! I have loads of photos from the last walk and look forward to this weekend too, brushing off the Fenit Island soil from my boots as I type!

Strong connections with Fenit - my mother was born on the island and even though I was brought up in London - I spent every summer flying "home" with a "luggage label" around my neck on an Aer Lingus flight as an unaccompanied minor! Long hot summers - they really were longer and hotter in those days - playing ( sometimes even working) in the fields until hunger got the better of us and we were fed pots full of Fenit Island spuds covered in butter!

How dare someone with no heritage in the area decide to rewrite the rules! I wish us all well and God speed in bringing down those monstrous fences. On a point of principle- doesn't any structure over 6ft in height need planning permission?

Vivo - how right you are.
The relevant sections of the planning regulations are as follows:
'....consist of the fencing or enclosure of any land habitually open to or used by the public during the 10 years preceding or enclosure for recreational purposes or as a means of access to any seashore ...'
or
'obstruct any right of way.'
Seems pretty clear cut to me - why you have to ask has KCC not intervened? Perhaps they are just waiting for enough members of the public to complain?
