Works on Common land
Certain types of works on common land need the Secretary of State’s consent under Section 38 of the Commons Act 2006, while other types of work can be carried out without consent because they are exempt. Some works are unlikely to be granted consent under Section 38 – an alternative option would be to seek consent to deregister the common (or part of it). It is ultimately up to the applicant to determine whether consent is needed; please see the guidance sheets Nos 1 to 13 listed below.
