Submitting your application

  1. You should submit your application to the registration authority for determination.
  2. The registration authority will check it is in order and will then advertise it and receive any objections. A period of six weeks is allowed for objections.
  3. If there are any objections, the authority may hold an independent hearing (indeed you should encourage it to do so).
  4. If it does register the land as a green, this should protect it from development and local people will have the right to continue to enjoy the land for informal recreation.
