Consultation on the Bodmin Moor Commons Council Establishment Order

DefraDefra have published a consultation to determine whether there is substantial support for the creation of the Bodmin Moor Commons Council, which would be the second created under Part 2 of the Commons Act 2006.

Section 27 of the 2006 Act sets out the process for making commons councils and it requires the Secretary of State (for Defra) to consult on a draft order. An order can only be made if substantial support is shown for it.

When considering responses to the consultation, the Secretary of State must have particular regard to responses from persons who have a legal interest in the land. Such persons comprise:

- those with a right over, or who occupy, the common (other than rights of common);

- those who have rights of common over the common; and

- those who have a legal function related to the maintenance or management of the common.

The consultation, which only has one question, has been published at the web address below. The consultation will last for one month and the deadline for responses is 13 April.

More information about the 2006 Act is available at:
