Abandoned and uncultivated lands shall be also registered in the cadastre to be kept by the Region. The registration must be immediately notified to owners concerned, who, within sixty days, may appeal to the President of the Regional Council (art. 3). Article 4 regulates the procedure to be followed for the allotment of abandoned and uncultivated lands.
