Following the submission of the inspector's report (download the report form the links on this page) the Town and Village green application was considered by the Public Rights of Way and Greens Committee in June 2011. The Committee resolved to register part of the land. The decision not to register part of the land was challenged in the courts. The Council withdrew its defence and agreed to reconsider the matter.
On 8 August 2012 the Council confirmed that it would be referring back the matter of whether or not the disputed land in Ashton Vale should become registered as a Town and Village Green to the original expert independent inspector who first considered detailed evidence on the matter, barrister Ross Crail.
Ms Crail held a lengthy pre-inquiry meeting with the parties in November 2012. Having heard various submissions, including availability of counsel and witness availability in the summer, the parties were in agreement to the inquiry commencing on 7 October 2013. The public inquiry has been adjourned at the request of the parties.
The application to reduce the amount of land to be registered went to PROWG in July 2014 and PROWG resolved to allow the applicants to reduce the amount of land they were seeking to register to slightly under 19 acres. Thereafter the landowner applied to voluntarily register the same area of land.
The register was updated with the voluntary registration on 4 November 2014. The details of the registration (reference VG21A) can be found at the town and village greens registration page.
