DATE: 31 Dec 1999

Acting for Madonna and Guy Ritchie, the owners of the Ashcombe Estate, on appeal under s. 6 CROW Act 2000 against the provisional mapping of land in the estate which will, otherwise, be subject to the so-called “right to roam” when s. 2 of the Act is brought into force.

 

The inquiry into appeals under s. 6 of the Countryside and Rights of Way Act 2000 (one the third inquiry under those provisions to be held to date) was heard by 2 inspectors from 5-11 May in Shaftesbury, Dorset, and considered the provisional mapping of 17 parcels of land on the Ashcombe Estate in Dorset.

The decision, which allowed most of the appeals, was issued on 17 June 2004.
