Why do land disputes take years to re­solve?

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Your Views -

The own­ers of land in Glin­ton have been told they can’t live on it be­cause they don’t have plan­ning per­mis­sion. City coun­cil leader John Holdich ad­mits the au­thor­ity is be­ing made to look fool­ish as the fam­ily has been there since 2013. The owner has ap­plied for per­mis­sion to cre­ate a trav­ellers’ site on the land. Ul­ti­mately, peo­ple have the right to buy land and set up home but only within the con­fines of the law. It’s be­com­ing a ma­jor is­sue that it takes so long - many years in some cases - to re­solve disputes like this. A speed­ier so­lu­tion and en­force­ment would al­low ev­ery­one to know where they stand and get on with their lives.
