The Common Land Village Green Register

Under the Commons Registration Act, 1965, the Council is a Registration Authority and holds the Register of Common Land & Village Greens for the borough. The register is a statutory document and can be inspected by anyone by appointment and free of charge. The register shows all land and property which is registered as common land or village green land in the Rotherham area.
