IMPORTANT NOTE: Notice of transfer of Local Land Charges Register (LLC1) to HMLR

From 31st December 2022 Malvern Hills will no longer provide a Local Land Charges Register (LLC1) search service, for either official or personal searches.

To facilitate the above, and allow time for staff to update systems, etc., we will be removing the LLC1 data currently available on the personal search portal from 3pm on Friday 30th December 2022. We will however continue to provide Con29 data for both official and personal searches.

Personal Search and CON29

From 31st December 2022 Malvern Hills will no longer hold the Local Land Charges Register (LLC1), after this date our LLC1 will have migrated to HM Land Registry’s national register, for more information visit GOV.UK. After 31st December 2022 LLC1 personal searches will only be available via HM Land Registry’s new digital service through Portal, Business Gateway and on GOV.UK pages.

Malvern Hills District Council will continue to provides unrestricted inspection of the 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 our online maps 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 charged 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)].
