Personal Search and Con29 [Wychavon District Council Replies only]
Further to the Government's instruction that the fee for a personal search of the Register has been revoked this Authority, as from 17 August 2010, will permit free inspection of the Local Land Charges Register on our mapping site – My Local Area. This site now also includes CON29R data – please note that this will only show data that is held by Wychavon District Council only and for any other replies you will still need to contact:- Malvern Hills District Council, Worcestershire County Council Highways Department and Severn Trent Water Authority for replies to Building Regulations, highways and water, etc.
The Local Land Charges Register and Wychavon District Council’s CON29 data is now available to view within the new My Local Area page on our Web Site. There are two map tabs:-
- Property details tab for a general householder, resident, etc. to find out more about their property;
- A more informative map tab allowing a more detailed search on a property/area.
As there are two ways in which to search on this page you are advised to read the guidance notes [which are located next to the map tab].
On certain sets of data there is also a link which will take you to their electronically stored documents e.g. planning decisions, Section 106 Agreements, etc.
Requests to inspect any other environmental data which is not on My Local Area will be dealt with separately and in accordance with the Environmental Information Regulations ("EIR"), i.e. inspection will be permitted unless it is reasonable to provide access in an alternative format.
As and when arrangement for accessing data are altered we shall publise this on our website. Please note that it is not necessarily the case that if an official search can be provided with 2 working days, then any request for access to the same data must be provided within 2 working days. The timescales by which access can be provided under a personal search will depend on the data requested and the manner in which it is to be accessed (i.e. inspection or copies).
It is permissible to make notes when inspecting environmental data in situ.
The EIR permit a reasonable charge to be made for the supply of environmental information. Therefore, if you request copies of entries on the LLC register or other environmental data by way of letter, these will be supplied and charge for in accordance with the EIR, i.e. the charges will not exceed an amount which the authority is satisfied is a reasonable amount [Regulation 8(3)].
