Whose land is this? Can it be roped off like this?

Reported via Android in the Dog fouling category by Mr M Wycislik-Wilson at 09:30, Thu 5 October 2017

Sent to Scottish Borders Council 6 minutes later

There is an area of grass at the top of Hill Terrace in Stow, just at the bottom of the first set of steps leading up to Cockholm Crescent. I am trying to find out who owns this land (is it private or council) as someone has placed plastic tape across it and two 'no dog fouling' signs in a rather aggressive and very ugly fashion (see photo). If it is council land, the unsightly mess needs to be removed!

I know the council is responsible for the grass at the side of the footpath between Hill Terrace and Cockholm Crescent, but I'm not sure about this particularly patch of grass.

Can you help?

  • A phone call from the council this morning suggests that this is indeed council land. However the owner of the house next to it says it belongs to them, and that they put up the signs/tape. Reluctant to pay a register search to check the boundaries for sure!
