Part 2 of Commons Act 2006 provides for the creation of commons councils for managing particular pieces of common land. These appear to be quasi-governmental organisations, but not to be public authorities under the Freedom of Information Act 2000. Two have been created:
- Brendon Commons Council (established by SI 2013/2959)
- Bodmin Moor Commons Council (established by SI 2015/1515)
Dartmoor Commomers’ Council
The Dartmoor Commoners’ Council was established by the Dartmoor Commons Act 1985 and serves the same purpose for commons on Dartmoor that commons councils do for commons elsewhere.
