The following Planning practice note Produced in partnership with Stephen Morgan of Landmark Chambers provides comprehensive and up to date legal information covering:
Applications for registration of a town and village green (TVG) are made to the registration authority for the area of land which is the subject of the TVG. This is usually the county council, unitary authority metropolitan district council or London borough. If the land comes under the jurisdiction of more than one registration authority, the application should be made to the authority within whose area the majority of the land lies.
Section 15 of the Commons Act 2006 (CoA 2006) sets out the statutory criteria for registration (see Practice Note: What is a town or village green?—Statutory requirements for registration).
The Commons (Registration of Town or Village Greens) (Interim Arrangements) (England) Regulations 2007, SI 2007/457 (the English CR Regulations) govern the procedure on applications for most of England, although applications for pioneer registration authorities in England are governed by the Commons Registration (England) Regulations 2014, SI 2014/3038 (the 2014 Regulations).
The pioneer registration authorities in England are:
Blackburn with Darwen Borough Council
Cumbria County Council
Devon County Council
County of Herefordshire District Council
Hertfordshire County Council
Kent County Council
Lancashire County Council
North Yorkshire County Council
In Wales, the Commons (Registration of Town or Village Greens) (Interim Arrangements) (Wales) Regulations 2007, SI 2007/2396 (the Welsh CR Regulations) govern the application procedure.
Guidance notes on applying to register TVGs outside the pioneer areas are available
