Guidance to commons registration authorities in England: Sections 15A to 15C of the Commons Act 2006

Guidance on registering town and village greens.


This guidance is for common registration authorities in England and outlines changes to Sections 15A to 15C of the Commons Act 2006. These authorities maintain the registers of common land and town and village greens in England.

The guidance reflects a number of significant changes to the law on registering new town and village greens under the Commons Act 2006, made in April 2013 under the Growth and Infrastructure Act. It replaces the interim version published in May 2013.
