Commons & village greens

We help developers manage the increasing public interest in the availability of land for public recreation, and the impact this can have on new development projects.

Our clients include national house builders, registered providers and land owners. We have dealt with areas of land from half an acre to 80 acres across England and Wales.

We advise on all aspects of the law relating to commons and village greens, including preparing evidence and advocacy at inquiries. We can lodge statements and notices with registration authorities and regularly advise on preventing rights accruing.

We have been active in this area of law for over 15 years and have been involved in a number of leading cases. We have successfully defended judicial review claims for land owning clients. We understand the relationship between the planning system and this area of law.
