  • ownership of common land and the relationship with the register of title
  • full exploration of all statutory provisions for management of common land and greens, including their effect on public access and relationship with controls on works
  • detailed guidance on development on common land, including works and exchanges, fencing and occupier's liability
  • compulsory acquisition of common land
  • establishing commons councils, taking account of the first two councils to have been established in England
  • historical registration of town or village greens and their management and use
