You are consulted by Wayne who is interested in buying a large block of land (Lot 4) in a subdivision in the Lismore area. Registered on the title to Lot 4 (and also on the titles to the other 12 Lots in the subdivision) is an easement burdening the Lot in favour of Lot 1 in the subdivision, being a much smaller lot owned by Ralph on which is a small shed. Ralph also owns a sugar mill in a nearby town.

The easement provides for the grantee to have the right to full use of the land for all purposes relating to the growing and harvesting and selling of sugar cane on the land.

If he buys the land Wayne would like to use it himself to grow organic bananas and seeks your advice as to whether he can do this given the easement recorded on the title.

What advice would you give to Wayne about the easement? Discuss relevant cases to support your advice.
