Village Greens & Development - Keeping Your Knowledge Up to Date
An appreciation of the law relating to village greens is important for both those who wish to preserve land for recreation and landowners and developers alike whose ambitions for land may be frustrated by village green registration.
The subject retains its importance despite statutory intervention curtailing the ability to register new greens and judicial decisions making the task of an applicant harder. The flow of new case law on village greens over recent years has been nothing short of remarkable.
This virtual classroom seminar is aimed at those who may have some existing knowledge of the subject but wish to ensure both that their knowledge remains up to date and that they understand some of the more detailed questions which can, and do, arise.
What You Will Learn
This live and interactive session will cover the following:
- When the right to apply to register a new green is statutorily excluded under the Commons Act 2006
- When the issue of statutory incompatibility may prevent the registration of a new green
- How the Victorian legislation prohibiting various activities on village greens interacts with the registration regime
- What effect changes in the boundaries of a qualifying locality over the period relied on for registration will have on a claim
- How the notion of a ‘significant number’ of inhabitants is to be understood
- When a claim will be defeated on the basis that use is ‘by right’ rather than ‘as of right’
- When notices will prove effective to prevent registration
- When implied permission will be found to exist so that use of land is not ‘as of right’
