§ Sir Wyn Roberts
The information is not held centrally. However, the project "The Common Lands of Wales", undertaken for the Countryside Commission by the rural surveys research unit at the University College of Wales, Aberystwyth in 1988 indicated that the number of areas shown as common land in that year in each local authority area was:
County Number of commons Clwyd 323 Dyfed 488 Gwent 70 Gwynedd 279 Mid Glamorgan 53 Powys 290 South Glamorgan 24 West Glamorgan 67
At the time of the survey some of the areas may not have been finally registered or may have been subject to deregistration.
