Bristol City Council refer dispute over Ashton Vale to independent inspector

Bristol City Council has today confirmed that it will be referring back the matter of whether or not the disputed land in Ashton Vale should become registered as a Town and Village Green to the original expert independent inspector, barrister Ross Crail.

A planned High Court hearing over the disputed future use of the land at Ashton Vale had been dropped after an 11th-hour agreement, last month. The Council has since been consulting on how best to refer the matter to an independent inspector.

The independent inspector will review the matter and produce a report with recommendations by the end of August.
