Town and Village Greens – The New Legislation

The Growth and Infrastructure Act 2013 received royal assent on 25 April 2013 and its provisions amend the legislation surrounding Town and Village Greens (TVGs). The new provisions are helpful to landowners. 

The new Act amends the Commons Act 2006 in the following ways:

Only the latter provision is in force as at today's date but even on its own it substantially curtails local residents' capacity to restrict or delay development of land, which will be very welcome news to landowners and developers.
