Course Overview

During this session barrister Rachel Coyle of 36 Civil will discuss the case of Cooper Estates Strategic Land Limited v Wiltshire Council [2018] and the High Court’s decision to quash Wiltshire Council’s town/village green (TVG) registration.

This was the first case of it’s type and revolved around what constitutes ‘trigger events’ pursuant to section 15 and Schedule 1A of the Commons Act 2006.

Introduced by the Growth and Infrastructure Act 2013, ‘trigger events’ were designed to remove barriers to development and investment caused by non-planning consents, such as town or village greens.

The issue in the case was whether policies within the Wiltshire Core Strategy, adopted in 2015, identified the land for “potential development”, and if so whether this amounted to a “trigger event”, thereby making the land ineligible for registration as a town or village green.
