NALC welcomes the government's move on land transparency 


The National Association of Local Councils (NALC) has welcomed the government's latest proposals to make data on land ownership publicly available and transparent.

In response to the government's contractual controls on land consultation, NALC argued that the government's proposals for additional land ownership data and information to be collected and held by His Majesty's Land Registry and freely available by searching the register are now long overdue and welcome.

The main interest of local (parish and town) councils is to establish who may have contractual control over land in their area when they are, for instance, developing a neighbourhood plan.

This consultation seeks views on the government's plans to provide a more transparent picture of controls on land through the creation of a freely accessible dataset.
