Says Naomi SmithIt is all too possible to round a corner on horseback and come upon a group of cattle with no prior warning -this WILL result in a horse being badly spooked at best, bolting at worst -it is only a matter of time ........... read more

Dorset Wildlife Trust

Tony Barnett writes to Vanessa Penny,
Definitive Map Team Manager, Dorset Countryside, Dorset Couny Council

"It is incorrect to state that there are common lands in Dorset that are Freehold."

Says Tony Barnett

Says Tony BarnettThe wildlife trust are claiming to be in the process or have certain purchased certain common lands in Dorset, this will be incorrect to state that there are common lands in Dorset that are Freehold.

All common lands in England and Wales were subject to a census for the 1925 and 1936 lands registration acts, and declared these lands were lands capable of rights of common.

In 1965, on contract to the Secretary of State, the University of Aberystwyth carried out the finale census of common lands, the process was to identify common lands and their purpose or for what product it was capable of producing and whether it was rural, urban, borough or metropolitan and if the land had been registered under the 1925-36 lands registration acts.

Lands that were not capable to be registered as Freehold, were then registered under section 9 of the 1965 commons registration act (CRA) by the commons commissioner, evidence to the status of all the common lands in the county was submitted by the registration authorities, to the Royal Commission.

All claims to rights, Owners,commoners and the decision of the commissioner was registered with the council, these are the copies of your authority I am applying for.

Vanessa this is from my law books on registering common land.4 (1) of the act;subject to the provisions of this section, a registration authority shall register any land as common land or a town or a village green or ,as the case may be, any rights of common or ownership of such land, on application duly made to it and accompanied by such declaration and such other documents (if any) as may be prescribed for the purpose of verification or of proving compliance with any prescribed conditions.

"The if any", mitigation can be applied for if there is a claim of lost, but, a statement of truth should accompany the application and should give details as to where, how and when the original proof to title became lost.

Evidence to prove good title, with title deeds to show pre registration must pre-date 1189.

Says Linda WrightWe moved to a Shropshire location a year ago having surveyed the local OS map and noted the significant number of bridleways around the property. Sadly the map appears a total fiction. Scarce any of the bridleways are usable ........... read more
