What is the Local Land Charges Register?

The Local Land Charges Register consists of twelve parts. The following are examples of the types of information or 'charges' that might be found on the Local Land Charges Register.

Financial charges

The amounts of money that are due to the Local Authority, usually these amounts have been incurred as a result of works carried out by the council in default and are binding on successive owners.

Conservation areas

These areas have been designated by the authority as areas containing special architectural or historic interest. It is desirable to preserve or enhance these areas. This designation gives additional controls over new buildings or demolition works. The conservation area designation also helps to protect trees. Therefore before carrying out any works to trees within a conservation area contact the Planning Office for advice.

Smoke control orders

Only certain approved types of fuel can be used in smoke control areas eg smokeless coal.

These are the 12 parts of the Land Charges Register:

  • Part 1: General financial charges
  • Part 2: Specific financial charges
  • Part 3: Planning charges
  • Part 4: Miscellaneous charges
  • Part 5: Fenland ways maintenance charges (now CLOSED)
  • Part 6: Land compensation charges
  • Part 7: New towns charges
  • Part 8: Civil aviation charges
  • Part 9: Opencast coal charges
  • Part 10: Listed buildings charges
  • Part 11: Light obstruction notices
  • Part 12: Drainage scheme charges

In addition to the items that are revealed on the Local Land Charges Register a potential purchaser will also wish to be made aware of any notices about to be served on the property that will become binding upon any new purchaser upon completion. To cover these items the questionnaire form CON29 is available.

What is on the CON 29 questionnaire?
