James has always had an interest in village green work alongside his main areas of practice. He maintains a discrete practice acting for interested parties in all matters relating to village greens, parks and open spaces. The substantial core of his work is acting as an independent inspector for registration authorities in relation to applications for registration of land as a town or village green.
