An obscure 30 year old law may give a group of Londoners the right to declare land earmarked for a health centre and car park an official 'village green'.

The London Standard (p17) reports that residents living near Luxembourg Gardens are challenging the right of Hammersmith and Fulham LBC to give North Thames regional health authority permission to build on a quarter acre site which they say is a haven for wildlife.

The residents have already failed to buy the land from the developer and now hope to prove that its loss would have a detrimental effect on the community.
