Land Registry’s programme to create a single digital Local Land Charges register was presented to local authority officers from across the country at a national event.

The annual Local Government Association conference in Harrogate provided a chance to explain our plans to some of the most influential figures in the sector.

They also told us about how their councils operate their registers, information which will support the transfer of their records to our digital system.

“It was a great opportunity to meet delegates as we know there is a lot of interest in our proposals,” said Local Authority Stakeholder Manager Rhonda Griffiths.

Policy and Stakeholder Engagement Manager Jamie Winch said the local authority officers were keen to understand the level of planning and scrutiny in our programme.

“The Chief Executives we met were also pleased to receive feedback that their authorities had been assisting our team and were keen to help in future,” he said.

Work on our programme follows legislation given Royal Assent in February.
