IN response to Fenland District Council’s statement in your paper dated September 10 with reference to the article regarding the restriction on my property I would like to respond as below.

With regard to marketing the property I have refusal of the application along with notification of change of condition the agricultural restriction forbidding me to market the property.

Also on the new condition Fenland District Council allowed myself and my wife to remain in the property until such time as we are both deceased.

In 1993 when I first applied to lift the restriction I was informed by the council that there was no reason to lift the restriction in the foreseeable future, again a few years later I enquired for the restriction to be lifted and was told the reason that the council would not lift the restriction was because they would not allow any residential property in the area, but my neighbour 500 yards away was given permission to build a bungalow without any restrictions whatsoever.

On the last occasion I sought professional advise and I was told that I stood a reasonable chance of getting the restriction lifted and duly opened my cheque book again, and the outcome of that was still no restriction lifted.
