Growth & Infrastructure Act – update 25 April 2013
The Growth and Infrastructure Act 2013 has now received royal assent. This means that, in England, it is no longer possible to apply to register land as a village green if it has been earmarked for development. However applications which have already been submitted will be processed. More information here.
Before applying to register land as a green you must not only ensure that the land fulfils all the relevant criteria (see below), but you must also check that the land has not been allocated for development. We shall publish an updated edition of our book, Getting Greens Registered, shortly.
