Common Land: A Guide to Active Usage and Exercising Your Rights

ISBN13: 9781907866074

Publisher: The Good Life Press

Format: Paperback
Price: Out of print

There are several books dealing with the law of commons. Most of them are written by lawyers for lawyers and they are not designed for the lay person. Others are more concerned with public rights of access to common lands for recreational purposes than with their agricultural use.

This book is deliberately written for commoners as a guide to the law as it impacts upon their everyday usage of commons - primarily by grazing. It discusses, in clear and simple terms, commoners’ rights and duties under the law and what steps can be taken if problems arise. The main focus throughout will be the needs of the grazier and their stock.

The relevant case law and statutes are provided as footnotes to the text for those who might wish to pursue their studies further, but the text itself is intended to be a general and non-technical guide to the relevant law.
