There is just one month left before the winners at the Rural Business Awards are announced. We have our tickets for the event and the hotel is booked. The suit needs a brush down but is otherwise fine. I have to practice tying the bow-tie as it is not my normal attire.
As finalists with four other keen competitors in the Best Rural Professional Services Business Category, we have to hope that our USP has made us stand out in the judging process. Our competitors are Appetite Me, Greenway Training, McCartneys LLP and Roythornes Limited. We wish them well, but not necessarily as well as us!
We have done our bit of PR with visits to CLA events and the Game Fair but by and large our build up to the final has been to concentrate on the business of sorting out our clients’ public rights of way issues.
We are very grateful to our supportive clients who value our service and write things like:
“Michael Wood from ET Landnet very recently acted for us in relation to an application by the county council to potentially upgrade an existing bridleway on the Estate to a restricted byway. We chose ET Landnet after carrying out considerable research and enquiry, based primarily upon strong recommendations received from two separate third parties, together with our own assessment of Michael during telephone conversations. Michael proceeded to carry out a considerable amount of detailed work over a number of months, culminating in a very satisfactory agreed outcome with the county council. We would describe Michael as extremely professional, incredibly knowledgeable on the subject matter and very capable of conveying incredibly complex information in a very user-friendly way. We would not hesitate to ask Michael to act for us again.”

We are too busy to keep our fingers crossed for the final announcement as we review more diversion proposals and issues relating to footpath claims. We cannot let our standards slip!
Please let us know if we can help you with your public path issues – call 0203 086 7657 or email me, Michael Wood firstname.lastname@example.org and we will try to help you too.
We are delighted to have secured for the third year the temporary diversion of the footpath through Fawley Court making it possible for the owner to run the Fawley River Club and Akoya-Henley events during the Regatta week.
Access along the River during the Regatta has always been contentious and starkly illustrates the issue between the public’s right of way and the ability of the landowner to manage their land. The issue is longstanding for the Regatta itself, with the National Trail running on their side of the riverbank.
Below is an aerial view of the site from Google Earth showing how the Meadow usually looks, so you can see how it is transformed to host these prestigious events!
The footpath runs close to the riverbank where the impressive glass pavilion is set up for guests. The diversion takes the public a little distance away from the site but they are still able to walk through.
We work with a number of estates like the Fawley Court Estate providing them with advice and management services for their public paths. It is an essential part of their land management to ensure compliance with the complex rights of way legislation.
We help landowners of all sizes with their public rights of way issues – you can contact us without obligation to see how we can help you
