89 Rights under the Countryside and Rights of Way Act 2000

Under the Countryside and Rights of Way Act 2000, various categories of land, including registered common land, are subject to a right of public access for open air recreation1. ‘Registered common land’ broadly means land that is registered as common land under the relevant Act (the Commons Registration Act 1965 for non-pilot areas and the Commons Act 2006 for 2008 and 2014 pilot areas), but its precise definition differs between areas. In non-pilot areas it includes, subject to exceptions2, land that has ceased to be registered as common land
