Information on land ownership, including how you can find out if the council owns a piece of land.
General information on land ownership should be sought from the Land Registry:

There may be some constraints on the type of information that can be provided in terms of confidentiality, data protection or for other legal reasons.
We may be able to tell you if the land is council owned.
Contact us online to make an enquiry.
Alternatively, you can email us: email@example.com.
When making your enquiry please provide a description of the location you are interested in.
We provide information relating to land and property in the council's ownership, leases, easements, wayleaves and boundary responsibilities.
If the property is owned, managed or maintained by the council then we will investigate and provide what information we are able to. Many deeds do not have information on boundary responsibilities, even if adjoining land is council owned. Further information may be in your title deeds or provided by the Land Registry:
You will need to consult the valuation and estates section who will handle the enquiry and negotiate the price or rent should the property you are interested in be available.
