Growth & Infrastructure Act – update 2 September 2013
The government has published further guidance to reflect a number of significant changes to the law on registering new town and village greens under the Commons Act 2006, made in April 2013 under the Growth and Infrastructure Act. It replaces the interim version published in May 2013. The guidance, which is available to download here will take effect from 1 October 2013.
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.
An updated version of our book, Getting Greens Registered, is now available to download.
