The Commons Act 2006 provides a new, time-limited, opportunity for you to rescue some of those commons which failed to be registered under the Commons
Registration Act 1965. The registers have reopened in nine areas of England, and in Wales, so you should start now. In Wales the opportunity to rescue lost commons commenced on 5 May 2017. The pioneer areas in England where the registers re-opened on 1 October 2008 are Blackburn with Darwen borough, Cornwall, Devon, Herefordshire, Hertfordshire, Kent and Lancashire, and the registers re-opened in Cumbria and North Yorkshire on 1 December 2014.
