    I offered to return the boot and was told to dispose of it. I have that in writing. I'm a big man on an anonymous Internet forum but in real life I'm surprisingly polite :). Plan A is to keep everything pleasant although I have some stuff saved up should I need Plan B

    You need to change the choke on your gun, from the picture it's either 3/4 or full , far to many pellets centered, or did said "boot" jump out at you on a walked up shoot?

    It was coming for me... I had no choice

    Having unfortunately dealt with inforcement officers I would strongly advise you do not pee them off, they can and will throw every bit of red tape at you. Best to be civil and accommodating.

    I'm not sure if people are actually bothering to read what I've written. I have permission, in writing, to dispose of the boot after I offered to return it to the rightful owner. It is now in a skip. I am perfectly within my rights to destroy it. I have not taunted the council with threats of obliterating their property and would not return the object in such a condition.

    If it should come to a legal battle over a decision then there are several areas where the council have not acted in accordance with their own guidelines and others where they may well have broken the law. I am keeping my powder dry at the moment as I don't want to start shelling out on solicitor's fees in the hope this will be resolved amicably.

    jobsworth don't like being interviewed by police also complaint to council stating clash of personalities  have worked in my favour in the past  cant make you make the pond smaller as they don't know what size it was to start off with you only cleaned the edges up and got rid of weeds and their roots etc

    If he said that wouldn't they ask for evidence of what it was like before the works commenced ?

    Checking Google maps will indicate what size it was pre edge trimming as most of the images are years old.

    Still have the old peoples bungalows down the road on Google maps and they got knocked down over 6 years ago :(

    Google maps doesn't give a very clear 3D image. The LIDAR data for this area is only accurate to 1m, not covered by the 25cm survey. I think they're more worried about the bund I've created collapsing but it's been standing for several months in pretty horrible weather and hasn't shown any signs of it so far. There's a lot of water in it (filled up about a week ago) and it's already attracting wildlife. I think these are amphibious stinkhounds... ;)
