Law of Commons and of Town and Village Greens
UK common land and town and village greens have value for a number of reasons - ecological, historical, agricultural, sporting, or recreational. The Law of Commons and of Town and Village Greens offers a practical explanation of the law, dealing with issues such as the classification of common land and rights of common, and the registration of common land and rights of common. This new edition takes account of the UK's Commons Act 2006, which makes significant changes to the regulation and protection of common land. This Act improves the current registration system to provide conclusive evidence of the status of common land, prevents severance of registered right from the land to which it is attached, enables the establishment of statutory commons councils with powers to regulate grazing and other agricultural activities, reinforces existing protections against unauthorized works and development, and clarifies the registration of town and village greens in the light of recent court decisions.
