Outcome of Application to Register Rokeby Playing Fields as a Town or Village Green
After several months, numerous representations from all sides and a public inquiry, the result of the application to register Rokeby Playing Fields as a Town or Village Green (TVG) has been published. The full report runs to over 80 pages and is available to read here https://apps.warwickshire.gov.uk/api/documents/WCCC-743-213
The Inspector’s report recommends that the TVG application is rejected and this is summarised at the top of Page 1 of the report:
“This Report concludes that the Applicant has failed to establish that the application land qualifies for registration as a new town or village green under section 15 of the Commons Act 2006 and recommends that the Registration Authority should reject
Warwickshire County Council’s Regulatory Committee is meeting on 13 February to consider this recommendation.
Learning Together Leading Tomorrow Trust and Rugby Free Secondary School welcomes this news as it represents a significant step towards the establishment of the new facilities for the school on the site. We look forward to continuing our work with the Local Authority and the Education and Skills Funding Agency to make good on the promises we made to parents when we first proposed the school.
We would also like to thank our parents and members of the local community who have supported the school and the Trust through what has been a lengthy and at times challenging process. Regular updates will be provided by the school as we move through the process in relation to the new school.
