R (Andrews) v Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs


Reference:
[2014] EWHC 1435 (Admin)

Date:
27th February 2014

Court:
High Court

Comment:

George Laurence QC and Edwin Simpson act for Mr Andrews who brings this claim with the support of the Ramblers' Association. The case concerns whether s 10, Inclosure Act 1835, authorises the setting out in inclosure awards of footpaths and bridleways at widths of less than 30 feet; and whether the effect of the ouster clause in the same act is in any event to prevent the denial of the effectiveness of such awards considerably more than a century later.
