Kent County Council has received an application to register land at Bybrook Road (opposite its junction with Rylands Road) in the Kennington area of Ashford as a Town or Village Green.

Under the Commons Act 2006, anyone may apply to the County Council for land to be registered as a Town or Village Green, but in order for land to qualify for registration it must be shown that ‘a significant number of the inhabitants of any locality, or of any neighbourhood within a locality, have indulged as of right in lawful sports and pastimes on the land for a period of at least 20 years’. For use of the land to have been ‘as of right’, it must have taken place without any force, secrecy or permission.

Further details about the application (including how to respond) and a plan showing the application site can be found by viewing the documents in the section below.
