Received by Buckinghamshire Council moments later

Good afternoon I’d like some clarification please on who owns what on the road that I live on. The Pound was originally made up of 10 houses on a square of land with ten garages and access to same the boundary of which is a brick wall with intermittent Spanish stone blocks. In circa 2003/2004 my house was built, 10A the Pound, on the side plot of garden I believe of No. 10 The Pound the front of which is the other side of the brick boundary wall – this wall sits on my boundary of my driveway to the front of my house. I have several questions as we are experiencing several issues which require resolving or assistance from you for which we would be grateful. Please answer each question in the same manner as asked, one definitive answer to each question in clear language. 1.Where does The Pound actually begin, is it at the entrance to the garages, through the entrance break in the brick wall, or is it at the point where you turn off of Hogfair Lane? 2.Who owns the piece of road from Hogfair Lane to the entrance of the old ‘The Pound’ Boundary; is it the council/Highways or it is privately owned by the residents of The Pound? My understanding is that the whole of the land is un-adopted by Highways and belongs to the residents of The Pound but we would like this confirmed please. 3.Same question regarding the grass verge with the Horse Chestnut tree on it, on the left hand side as you turn into the piece of road from Hogfair Lane to the Pound. I have been told this is actually owned by Number 6 only, but this may be miscommunication, please confirm ownership and responsibility. 4.I am aware the grass verge on the other side of the entrance to The Pound is owned by Highways. Dependant on the answers to the above, I would like you to advise on the following please:- 5a. Including myself at 10A The Pound, all residents cars total 12 between us. In excess of 100 cars per day (pre Covid) pull into, turn around and park on the above
