Recreation Spaces: Urban Areas

Volume 474: debated on Wednesday 23 April 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs how many pieces of land have been designated as a town green under the Commons Act 2006. (200073)

This information is not held centrally. No practical distinction is made in law between town and village greens. A survey of commons registration authorities undertaken in September 2007 recorded that, among the two-fifths of authorities responding, four new greens had been registered under section 15 of the Commons Act 2006 since it was brought into force on 6 April 2007.
