Some of the stiles formed part of the boundary to her farm and were crucial in terms of livestock control. CLA advisers explained the relevant legal aspects of the situation to the member, recommended how she should respond to the Council and highlighted the various documents she should make reference to. The grateful member commented that CLA had been "an amazing help".
