Town and Village Greens

 The application and registration of a town or village green is often used to frustrate development, it is therefore  important for those with development interests to ensure that such applications can not be made or successfully  resisted.  We have also acted for applicants seeking the registration of town or village green.  In particular, we can advise  on the following aspects:

  • Applications to register town and village greens
  • Opposing applications for registration of village greens, particularly where development proposals are being thwarted by such applications
  • Application to exchange land registered as a village green
  • Advice in relation to appeals and inquiries in relation to village green applications
  • Advice in respect of judicial review of decisions by Councils and/or Inspectors in relation to a village green application/confirmation

Assets of Community Value

We can advise upon applications for Assets of Community Value or objections thereafter including appeals to the Upper Chamber.
