Somerford Parish Council v Cheshire East BC [2016] EWHC 619 (Admin) (Admin Ct): the court granted the Parish Council's application for judicial review of CEBC's decision to reject an application by B to register land as a new town or village green under s.15(2) of the Commons Act 2006. The court found that the independent legal expert's advice was vitiated by procedural error in allowing CEBC's evidence out of time and without giving B the opportunity to comment on the late evidence. Also, the independent Legal Expert should have concluded that a public inquiry was necessary to determine the issue as to whether the application land was a highway. CEBC's decision was quashed.
