*Adamson and others v Paddico (267) Ltd (Geo H Haigh & Co Ltd intervening)

Commons – Registration. Two cases were before the Supreme Court where an application to rectify the register under s 14 of the Commons Registration Act 1965 had been made following the registration of an area of land as a town or village green. Both applications had been allowed at first instance. The Court of Appeal, Civil Division, had allowed one appeal and dismissed the other. Both cases were appealed. The Supreme Court, upholding the first instance decisions in both cases, gave guidance as to the proper approach in principle to the lapse of time in bringing an application for rectification under s 14 of the Act.
