Paddico (267) Limited v Kirklees Metropolitan Council and others

[2012] EWCA Civ 262; [2012] LGR 617; [2014] UKSC 7; [2014] 2 WLR 300

20th February 2014

Court of Appeal


George Laurence QC and Ross Crail instructed by DLA Piper UK LLP (Leeds Office) appeared for the successful claimant in connection with a claim to rectify the register of town and village greens. Vos J held that previous authority (including Oxfordshire County Council [2006] and Ex parte Sunningwell [2000] - both cases in the House of Lords in which Mr Laurence QC appeared) compelled him to allow the claim. The Court of Appeal agreed, but allowed the appeal on the grounds of the justice of rectifying where, as here, there had been delay in seeking relief under section 14 of the Commons Registration Act 1965.
