Shared access – who can do what

Shared access – who can do what

What are the rules on storing objects i.e. crates and large rubbish bins along a shared access footpath that is the only entrance to numerous blocks of flats? Shared access - who can do what?

A business below one of the blocks of flats (not mine) seems to think that he owns the whole path and any free space along that path.

It is a health risk as he stores cardboard in a plastic bin adjacent to the flats, leaves crates lying in a very narrow passageway and the bins are often not fully closed and we have had a rat problem (environmental health aware).

It is smelly and unsightly for residents to have to pass this everyday.

How would you approach this problem?

Many thanks

Access to the alleyway may well be shared but somebody must own it. I suggest you find out who that is.

I recommend a letter to the local Environmental Heath Officer and also a letter to the business which is causing the problem, each letter cc'd to the other.

Good luck.
