In England, the status of a registered town or village green is retained in perpetuity unless there is a successful application to de-register a green under the Commons Act 2006 or the High Court orders the register to be amended under section 14 of the Commons Registration Act 1965.

The Welsh Government has jurisdiction for the law on town and village greens in Wales.
