Legal Update – Council land not held to be Village Green

Report on R (Barkas) v North Yorkshire County Council

Village greens have been in the local news a lot over the past year or two, the Newhaven beach case being particularly prominent.  The Commons Act 2006 permits a local resident to apply to register land as a village green in certain circumstances. 

To be successful, the applicant must be show that the land had been used by a “significant number of the inhabitants of any locality, or of any neighbourhood within a locality, indulged as of right in lawful sports and pastimes on the land for a period of at least 20 years”.
