Use Of The Lizard Land

Use of Lizard Charity Land 



Apart from mobility scooters and the use of designated parking areas, motorised vehicles are not permitted on land managed by The Lizard Charity at any time, without express permission from the trustees.


Parking On The Lizard 

The land running alongside The Lizard road, between the railway arch and the black gate, opposite the houses has been used for parking of both residents’ and visitors’ cars over the years.

An area has been provided near the black gate for a turning circle (although this is commonly used for parking) and also The Lizard car park has been established to the west of the railway arch. 

The Lizard Charity Trustees are happy for residents and visitors to use the land to park cars which are in daily use, at their own risk. 

Untaxed (or ‘SORNed’) cars, or caravans kept on any of the land managed by The Lizard Charity are only permitted in exceptional circumstances, with express, written permission from the Trustees.


Skips, Builders’ Materials & Household Waste Bins 

The Lizard has been designated a conservation area, and as such, The Lizard Charity trustees are keen to preserve the appearance of the area, whilst supporting residents in their daily lives. 

There are a handful of houses that, because they have no available private land, are permitted to keep their bins on The Lizard land.

Similarly, if residents need temporarily, to store builders’ materials and/or a skip, permission will need to be sought from the Trustees. 


Disposal Of Garden Waste 

Green garden waste should not be disposed of on The Lizard land, as this will all smother the native flora and potentially spread unwanted plants. Brown bins are available from South Norfolk Council for disposal of domestic garden waste.


Use of Lizard Charity Land By Individuals, Businesses, Contractors & Other Organisations  

The Lizard Charity Land is not to be used by anyone or any Business, Contractor or other Organisation for commercial benefit or other beneficial use not in the direct interest of the Land or permitted users and uses of it, without express prior permission from the Trustees.”

Such uses include, but are not limited to: building works; works and/or services installations involving the crossing of The Lizard Charity Land to access other sites (whether on, under, or over the land); selling of goods or services; professional dog-walking; tethering or enclosure of livestock; camping; harvesting of flora such as holly or other vegetation (whether renewable or not); and storage of materials or equipment (whether temporary or otherwise). If in any doubt, please contact the Clerk for clarification.”

Applications for use of The Lizard Charity Land for commercial or other beneficial use by Individuals, Businesses, Contractors or other Organisations must be made in writing to the Trustees, via the Clerk, at least four calendar months in advance of the intended use. 

Permission may not be granted, and the Trustees are not obliged to provide any reasons for refusal. 

Any such permissions that are granted by the Trustees may be subject to legal wayleaves and/or easements for which all expenses and legal costs must be borne by the applicant, and compensation payments agreed and made prior to any works commencing.
