R (on the application of Cotham School) v Bristol City Council

Town and country planning – Town or village green. The defendant had erred in law when it had concluded that the use of land by the local inhabitants between 1991 and 2011 had been as of right, and had failed to provide adequate and sufficient reasons for reaching that conclusion, rendering its decision unlawful. Accordingly, the Administrative Court allowed the claimant's application for judicial review of the defendant's decision to reject an inspector's recommendation and to register the land as a town or village green.
