Planning Podcast 22: Village Greens - does a lawful use become a criminal offence?

Wed, 05 May 2021


The Planning Podcast turns to look at the practical effect of town and village green registration through the case of TW Logistics. Where a long standing use and activity co-exists with recreational uses, will that activity mean that the landowner will commit an offence under the ‘Victorian Statutes’? Richard Kimblin QC’s guests are Rowena Meager and Sioned Davies, both planning and environmental barristers at No5 Barristers' Chambers, who explain the essential background, the practical legal effect and draw attention to the potential effects of registration.
