R (on the application of Littlejohns and another) v Devon County Council

Commons – Registration. The claimants sought judicial review of the defendant commons registration authority's decision, refusing their application to register rights of common. The Planning Court, in dismissing the application, held that the reason the claimants' application had failed had been that they could not establish that they had acquired rights of common when they had applied to register them. Accordingly, the authority's decision had been correct in law.
