The seventh edition of Our Common Land by Paul Clayden has been revised and updated to include the many changes in the law which have taken place since the previous edition in 2006.
These include the bringing into force of part 1 of the Commons Act 2006, and the divergence of the law in England and Wales. This book takes account of the most recent court cases, and policy guidance on common land issued by the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, and the Welsh government.
There is also a substantial section dealing with town and village greens, which complements the society’s manual, Getting Greens Registered.
The book puts the law into practice. It is of value to local authorities, landowners, common right-holders, and the public.
