Commons Act 2006 – Section 16

Closed on

Former Rangers House, Cricket Hill Lane, Yateley, GU46 6BB. Application to Deregister and Exchange Common Land

Following the informal consultation undertaken at the end of 2017, Hampshire County Council (HCC) is formally applying to the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) under section 16 of the Commons Act 2006 to deregister an area of Yateley Common and to provide replacement land in exchange for the land to be deregistered. The Planning Inspectorate will decide the application on behalf of the Secretary of State.

The purpose of this application is to enable HCC to progress the sale of the Rangers House, Cricket Hill Lane, Yateley.  The house was originally built in the early 1970s to accommodate a Site Ranger. In 2013, HCC determined the property was no longer required for operational use.  To enable disposal of the property on the open market the Rangers House needs to be de-registered as Common Land.

The consultation period will run until the 4 May 2018. Any representations in respect of the proposed deregistration and exchange should be sent in writing ON or BEFORE 4 May 2018 to: Common Land Team, The Planning Inspectorate, 3F Temple Quay House, Temple Quay, Bristol BS1 6PN or commonlandcasework@pins.gsi.gov.uk. Please note that representations sent to The Planning Inspectorate cannot be treated as confidential. They will be copied to the applicant and possibly to other interested parties.
