Commons and Village Greens

The Commons Registration Act 1965 required local authorities in England and Wales to establish registers of common land and town and village greens within their areas; recording the extent of the land, the owners of the land and any rights held over the common.  Land charges compile, maintain and, if appropriate, amend the registers of commons and town and village greens.  We do not normally become involved in the management of commons or the enforcement or protection of rights of common, unless we happen also to be the owners of those commons, or manage them by agreement.
