In 2013 Hampshire County Council, in its capacity as Commons Registration Authority for Hampshire, received an application under Section 15 of the Commons Act 2006, for the registration of land at Tennis Court Field, Barton Stacey, as a town or village green. The application sought to register the land on the basis that it had been used by a significant number of the inhabitants of a
locality for lawful sports and pastimes for at least 20 years up until the time the application was submitted (see Appendix 1 for a location map).
Following the advertisement of the application, the Applicant contacted the County Council stating that due to a change in the circumstances surrounding the application land, they wished to withdraw the application.
Having considered the Applicant’s request to withdraw the application, along with all other available information, officers consider that it is reasonable for the request
to be accepted.
