Is all your council land registered?

19/03/2020

The Government has published a list of land owned by local councils which is not registered with the Land Registry.   This includes village halls, recreation areas and even academy schools.   All parish, town, district and borough councils are urged to check the list. 

In some circumstances, non-registration, especially of lands held by charitable trusts, could lead to legal issues and penalties.

Registration is usually a relatively simple and inexpensive matter.  The Land Registry can provide guidance.
