We believe that registered town and village greens, of which there are over 200 in Cumbria, are one of the county’s most precious historic assets. 

We are therefore undertaking research to review the current state of registered greens and to identify whether any work is required to help protect and better manage them. 

With support from Cumbria County Council Commons Registration Authority, we have already sent out details of all registered greens to Parish Councils across the county to identify any discrepancies in the register or issues that need addressing. 

We're now inviting members of the public interested in their local village greens to provide further information via a short online questionnaire.

Carol Douglas, Policy Officer,

“We would like to hear if you value your local greens or about any difficulties associated with them.  We need the help of the public to establish if support is needed for communities to better manage, enjoy or protect their town or village greens.”

“If the survey findings show that there is a need for more support for communities with their town and village greens, then we can work to develop ways of providing this.”
