Personal Search and CON 29
Malvern Hills District Council Replies only
Further to the Governments instruction the fee for a personal search of the Register has been revoked by this Authority.
From March 2017 Malvern Hills District Council has permitted unrestricted inspection of the Local Land Charges Register and CON 29 data, originating from the local authority, on our Local Land Charges portal, which is freely available via our online maps.
Please note that this portal will only show data that is held by Malvern Hills District Council and for any other replies you will still need to contact: South Worcestershire Building Control, Worcestershire County Council Highways Department and Severn Trent Water Authority for replies to Building Regulations, highways, water, 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 arrangements for accessing data are altered we shall publish 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)].
