Authority update - New Land Registry system for Plans and Initiatives to support customers on 30th June 2017

As of 1 June 2017, Landgate will launch a New Land Registry (NLR) system, which will enable selected Deposited Plans and Survey Strata plans to be printed to pdf from submitted digital survey data.

To support this process, Landgate has redesigned the plan template.  The new template will lead to process efficiencies and automation and ultimately an improved service to customers. 

Plans that are not created through NLR will continue to use existing templates.

Summary of plan template changes

  • The information captured on the plan has been enlarged and repositioned..
  • The orientation of all pages within the plan will be landscape and the plan can be printed on page sizes A4, A3 or A2.
  • Where a table/section is not required as there is no information to be presented, the section will not be printed. These include interest-only plan

Structure of the template
For details within how the new template will look please see Customer Information Bulletin 293
