Alton Green

Alton Green, an area of uncultivated land in Lower Holbrook, is registered common land and contains a pond which is maintained by the Parish Council, and a bench which is insured by the Council but maintained by the family who installed it in memory of their relations.

Alton Green is subject to the protection of the Local Authority (Holbrook Parish Council) under section 9 of the Commons Registration Act 1965. Section 9 states that “any local authority in whose area the land or part of the land is situated may take such steps for the protection of the land against unlawful interference as could be taken by an owner in possession of the land, and may (without prejudice to any power exercisable apart from this section) institute proceedings for any offence committed in respect of the land.”
