Temporary. What does it mean?
Maureen Comber replies to the question posed by Bob Milton

"Temporary fencing of common lands is a non-starter for several reasons:"

Says Maureen Comber

Says Maureen ComberAfter reading Bob's interesting research on the meaning of temporary it occurs to me that temporary fencing of common lands is a non-starter for several reasons:

Only the commoners could apply for fencing and it would have to be all of them since others might be adversely affected.

In the absence of statutory powers the only direct power of management available to the owner affecting rights of common is the right to drive the common. Few owners take advantage of this right today.

An owner, other than a lord seems to merely take his place alongside the commoners, as one of the persons representing two thirds in value of affected interests who must consent before an order is certified as expedient by the Inclosure Commissioners (Commons Act 1876) for any scheme of proposed regulation. (Gadsden)

Most important of course is sec.194 LPA 1925 now replaced by sec.38 of the CA 2006. This has weakened the prohibition of fencing by altering the authorisation by the Minister of State or Parliament to an appropriate national authority. This raises the question of which national authority that might be and how appropriate they are.

It seems strange to me that this loosening of the 1925 Act should happen almost simultaneously with the demolition of the Commons Commissioners!?
