Local land charges searches

As the Highway Authority, the County Council provides highway information to district councils for completion of the local land charges search certificate. The information primarily provided is in connection with highways maintainable at public expense, road improvement schemes and new road schemes. The searches are completed and returned to the appropriate district council for collation within 3 working days. We charge the district council a fee for providing this information.
