Portishead Branch Line - MetroWest Phase 1

Received 18 January 2020
From Mrs Jane Fear on behalf of Mr Michael James LEE


Dear Sir I am representing my father Mr Michael James Lee. He is elderly and I hold a Power of Attorney for him, allowing me to act on his behalf. Please note that all correspondence should be sent to my address and not to my father’s former address at (Redacted) as he no longer resides there. Thank you So I would draw your attention to the small track, owned by my father, to the old railway line that us currently accessed via the Portbury 100 road. Land Registry Title (Redacted). This is to be compulsory purchased by Metrowest. The track is the only means of access to the field adjacent to it, which is also owned by my father. Land Registry Title (Redacted). I now ask that some sort of legal ‘right of way’ into that field can be retained when the purchase of the track proceeds. Or, alternatively a suitable new access from the Portbury 100 is provided otherwise the field will be rendered completely inaccessible. If, however, this order goes ahead with no such ‘right if way’ or access in place it will significantly reduce the value of the field and consequently I would want to ensure that significant compensation were granted in order to reflect the resultant devaluation of this land. Yours faithfully Jane Fear (Mrs)
