The Open Spaces Society, Britain’s leading pressure-group for common land, has slated plans by the Heads of the Valley Development Company Ltd to develop common land at Rassau, Blaenau Gwent, ahead of the prospective Circuit of Wales motor-racing development. The company has applied to the Welsh ministers for consent to carry out major works on the common.

If the Circuit of Wales development is to go ahead, the company will need the ministers’ consent to deregister about 340 hectares of common land and to give suitable land in exchange. The company has not yet submitted this application and so the future of the motorsports development remains uncertain.

But regardless of this, the company is now seeking consent for buildings, haul roads, car-parking, trenches and drains, stockpiles of excavated material and a mass of fencing on 250 hectares of the common in connection with the prospective motorsports-development. The company claims that if that does not go ahead it can remove the works and restore the common.

Says Kate Ashbrook, general secretary of the Open Spaces Society: ‘We have objected most strongly to this industrial development on a substantial area of common land. Although the company claims the works are temporary, we do not believe that it can restore the common to its former state should the Circuit of Wales not go ahead.

The community of Llanmorlais, a small village seven miles west of Swansea, could see a strip of disused railway confirmed as their village green after a public inquiry in March. 

James Matthews, an Open Spaces Society member, has made the application after villagers completed evidence of their uninterrupted use of the land for 20 years.

The Open Spaces Society welcomes its member’s application for a village green.  ‘This will be a fabulous asset for a small community, protecting the disused railway for local people to continue to enjoy for informal recreation,’ says Jay Kynch, the society’s representative in South Wales.  ‘What is most important is that local residents used the green, for play and other informal recreation, between 1989 and 2009 without seeking permission.  The evidence is accumulating that this was so.’

She adds, “There seems to have been a sad misunderstanding by the Community Council, who wrongly believed that it needed to buy land if it supported people’s use of the green.  This is incorrect.  Anyone can own or lease a village green – they simply have to allow residents access to the area for village-green activities.  Perhaps, if the council joined the OSS it would be better informed.’

Mr Matthews has received letters of support from both Edwina Hart AM and Martin Caton MP.
