Obviously, it`s a huge amount of money and that`s exactly why, if you`re thinking of buying land, you have to read the conditions on the building permit and, if there`s a visibility splay, then you should mark things on the floor to see if the requirements can be met within the boundaries of the land. And if the lines are drawn, they cross land outside the property, so make sure that all necessary negotiations and arrangements are made with the adjacent owners before exchanging contracts on the land. Don`t buy land without knowing in advance that it has convenient and legitimate access. David Snell explains the implications of visibility games Visibility is the ability to clearly see traffic approaching both sides at a crossroads. Connection to the public highway: all land necessary for the proposed construction must be clearly drawn with a red line on the plan and must contain land necessary for access to the site from a public highway, visibility and car parks. If part of the triangle required for a visibility game is outside the boundaries of the terrain, with the exception of highway lands, adjacent occupants must consent to the terrain being kept away from obstacles of more than 1,005 metres in order for the building permit to be used. The problem is that there is no way to force shoreline owners to agree to limit what they can do on their land, so they can get a veto over the development of the land. If your neighbours absolutely insist that they do not allow this development and are not prepared to reach a long-term agreement to keep the country away from any handicap, then you have no choice but to freeze development or try to organize another access. Access systems: When new access to an existing road is proposed, details of access visibility (including dimensions) must be displayed on an appropriate level, ideally at 1:500 scale (guide is available in the Bedfordshire Central Council Design Guide – Chapter 10 (PDF 3.8MB). When a new road system is proposed, visibility conditions for each intersection must be displayed on an appropriate level, ideally at the 1:500 scale. Visibility games at each entrance or node are measured along the edge of the main road (the “Y” distance) from a point that has a definite distance from the side of the main road (the “X” distance). If next door plans to build a shed, fence or hedges inside the earth triangle for a visibility splay, then there is nothing you can do about it except try to negotiate a colony with them.
And remember, this situation could affect both sides of the property and two groups of neighbors. On faster roads or roads with higher classification, the length of the vision game will increase, and the curvature of the road may require that the lines be uneven in each direction. The last thing you want to do when you leave your new home is to have to walk down a street without seeing what comes in both directions. It is dangerous, and therefore the authorities will insist that each new entrance on a trunk or a classified road has a field of view – which, even with a limit of 30 km/h, usually means a requirement to have a clear visibility of 70 meters (meters) in each direction.
