Stop spurious village green applications halting housing development

Comment 10th July 2010

Repeal the Commons Act 2008 (and Commons Act 2006).

This law allows people to apply for village greens on the flimsiest of grounds.    A social housing development (aka affordable housing) with planning approval has been held up for 2.5 years because a spurious village green application has been made using the Commons Acts recently brought in.  The application is now being turned down but the applicatants have succeeded in delaying the project.

The village green registration authorities have no time limit in which they must reach a conclusion about an application.  Therefore everyone is using spurious village green applications to delay any development they disagree with, regardless of the planning laws.

The Commons Acts are not needed since the Planning Laws are sufficient in themselves. 

   

Why does this matter?

The village green registration authorities have no time limit in which they must reach a conclusion about an application for a village green.  Therefore everyone is using spurious village green applications to delay any development they disagree with, despite planning approval having beeen granted.
