Civil War Among the Gods

3 February 2020.  Registration from 2.00pm . Seminar from 2.30-5.30pm.

The Commons Registration Act 1965 and its successor, the Commons Act 2006 have proved difficult of interpretation in its application to village greens. Lancashire/Surrey is the seventh case to go to the House of Lords on the subject. In all these cases, at least one member of Francis Taylor Building has been involved. In Lancashire/Surrey, Douglas Edwards QC, Jeremy Pike, Daisy Noble and Ned Westaway all appeared; all will be at the seminar. The case is particularly interesting because of the division, forcefully expressed, which it produced among the Supreme Court Justices; because it left open questions about the scope of statutory incompatibility; and because it opened up the possibility of applications for deregistration of local authority land.

The seminar will be chaired by Douglas Edwards QC

The following will be addressed:

  • What do the majority in Lancashire say? Jeremy Pike
  • What do the minority say? Horatio Waller
  • What is the scope of the decision? What land of local authorities is properly registered? What are the implications for ROW cases? Ned Westaway
  • What scope is there for deregistration of local authority land? Is it all too late? Morag Ellis QC and Annabel Graham Paul
  • Question and answer session.

 

Venue: Francis Taylor Building, Inner Temple, London, EC4Y 7BY
Event Speakers: Douglas Edwards QC, Morag Ellis QC, Jeremy Pike, Annabel Graham Paul, Ned Westaway, Horatio Waller
