The Commons Act 2006, due to be in force later this year, will sweep aside the Commons Registration Act 1965 and introduce a completely new scheme for the registration, management and protection of common land in England and Wales.

The Act will enable the establishment of commons councils and give greater protection to commons by repealing section 194 of the Law of Property Act 1925 and replacing it with a new statutory system of control. There are also new rules for the registration of town and village greens based on long user.

All practitioners advising on the acquisition, sale, development or management of rural land will need to know about these important changes. Commons and Village Greens – The Modern Law, written by one of the leading experts in the field, not only explains the new legislation and its implications in detail but also provides a comprehensive text on the law for all those involved in or affected by commons. The book will also contain the full text of the Commons Act 2006.
