Voluntary registration/dedication of land as a town or village green

Under Section 15 (8) of the Commons Act 2006, powers are available which allow an owner of land, to dedicate land voluntarily as a town or village green by applying to have it included in the register of town or village greens.  Read our guidance note here and follow this link for further advice from Defra on the voluntary registration of land as a town or village green.
