Commons Registration (East Sussex) Act 1994

1994 CHAPTER vii

An Act to make provision for the reconstitution and validation of the registers of common land and of town or village greens maintained under the Commons Registration Act 1965 for the County of East Sussex; and for connected purposes.

[5th July 1994]

WHEREAS—

(1)

Under the [1965 c. 64.] Commons Registration Act 1965 (in this Act referred to as “the Act of 1965”) the East Sussex County Council (in this Act referred to as “the county council”) is the registration authority for its area, subject as mentioned in section 2 (2) of that Act:

(2)

In January 1993 the registers of common land and of town or village greens which the county council is required to maintain under the Act of 1965 (in this Act referred to as “the East Sussex registers”) were completely destroyed by fire:

The county council has begun to reconstitute the East Sussex registers by collecting evidence from various sources as to the contents of the East Sussex registers:

(4)

The county council apprehends that although it will be possible accurately to reconstitute the major part of the East Sussex registers it will not be possible to effect a reconstitution of the East Sussex registers which can be proved to be complete and accurate in every detail:

To avoid uncertainty as to the status of the matters recorded in the East Sussex registers as reconstituted and to enable the county council to comply with its duties under the Act of 1965 it is expedient to make provision with respect to the reconstitution, and for the validation, of the East Sussex registers and to make such other provision for these purposes as are contained in this Act:

(6)

The purposes of this Act cannot be achieved without the authority of Parliament:

(7)

On the promotion of the Bill for this Act the county council has observed the requirements of section 239 of the [1972 c. 70.] Local Government Act 1972:

May it therefore please Your Majesty that it may be enacted, and be it enacted, by the Queen’s most Excellent Majesty, by and with the advice and consent of the Lords Spiritual and Temporal, and Commons, in this present Parliament assembled, and by the authority of the same, as follows:—
