LTN-54 Protection of Ownerless Common Land and Village Greens

Legal Topic Note 54-July 2017

Some Village Greens and common land in England and Wales have no known owners. Local Authorities (including local councils) have the power to protect such land.

This note will look at the relevant law, which is mainly set out in section 43 of the Commons Act 2006 and in sections 38 of the 2006 Act.
