Town and Village Green Consultation Response

Read the Federation’s response to Defra’s consultation on the registration of new town or village greens.

18 October 2011

We believe the current legislation is poorly drafted and has too often been abused by people opposing affordable housing developments. An increasing number of greens have been promoted that have no prospect of being registered which has incurred unnecessary six-figure costs for housing associations and delayed many approved affordable housing projects. The federation strongly supports the review of the legislation.
