AS spokesperson for the canal side residents involved in a dispute with Norfolk County Council and Cambridgeshire County Council over the ownership of of our gardens, I thought that your readers may want to know the current situation.
After extensive negotiations during which NPS (as agents for the councils) have been somewhat less than straight forward, the matter has now gone to adjudication by the Land Registry.
NPS are now to put the land back up for sale (on November 9) so we are back where we were in April when this whole matter was first dropped on us.
We made an offer to NPS on July 7 to settle this, and as of yet, we have not even had the courtesy of a reply.

The whole 0.9 acre of scrub land is probably worth something around �500. The councils want us to pay somewhere around �400 each for our individual plots. The fight goes on.
