There are some easements that require a change of only a few feet in order that the land they go through gets more use from theitr land. At this moment in time this is a costly process through Local councils and solicitors as well as getting permission from the person using the land to cross. Surely if the land can still be used to get to another property without any extra distance or impediment it should be allowed to be changed by the owner of the land and without recouse to local authority, the legal system or the neighbour.
Why does this idea matter?
It allows the owner of the land to have the say in what happens on their land and not others. It would also resolve many neighbourhood desputes.
