Last week in Cooper Estates Strategic Land v Wiltshire Council [2018] EWHC1704 (Admin) the high court has quashed a town/village green (TVG) registration on the basis that the land had been identified  for “potential development” by policies in the Core Strategy thereby amounting to a “trigger event” preventing the registration of a TVG.  The court rejected a secondary argument that the registration authority’s decision not to hold a non-statutory inquiry was unfair.   

Gregory Jones QC and Philip Petchey who appeared for the Landowners, Cooper Estates Strategic Land instructed will address key issues arising from both aspectsof the judgment including the wider consequences for sites which may have been unlawfully registered as TVG, the need to engage with proposed draft plans with a TVG perspective,  and how to maximise the chances of securing a non-statutory inquiry
