Other FAQs

What do the 8 digit numbers mean?

These are INSPIRE-IDs and can be entered in the Land Registry website to search on that piece of land. Here's the link to the search page.

 

The piece of land I'm looking at doesn't show an 8 digit number. Why is that?

That means there's no information for that area. This dataset is only showing freehold property extents so either means the land isn't registered with Land Registry, or it has a different ownership type.

 

Can I hide the 8 digit numbers?

No, sorry, they're part of the style of that layer.

 

How accurate are the outlines?

These outlines are only there to give you a reference for the land ownership. It's not the definitive record. So whether it's accurate or not, you shouldn't use it as the de-facto data.

 

How do I request a change in the data?

Speak to Land Registry directly. We've got no power to change the data.
