Note on Implementation of Part 1 in Wales


The re-registration and deregistration provisions of Part 1 of the 2006 Act were commenced in Wales on 5 May 2017. For further details see: Welsh Assembly Government Website. The application process will be administered by the Welsh Commons Registration Authorities (CRAs). The WAG site includes links to the local authorities involved, but the contact details most-recently available for the CRAs are listed HERE. The Regulations are specific to Wales and are explained in the official WAG Guidance. For cases involving ‘waste land of a manor’ the archives holding manorial records can be identified online through the Manorial Documents Register. The Commons Commissioners’ Decision Letters for Wales are available HERE.
