Council owned land and premises

We have a computerised system of large scale ordnance survey maps showing the boundaries of all land owned by the Council. Also shown are details of all purchases and sales together with leases, lettings, licences, easements and rights of way.

Follow this link to ascertain if the land you are enquiring about is owned by this Council:

New Forest Mapping System


What if I want to know who owns private property?

Please contact the Land Registry  (0300 006 0411) to obtain the relevant enquiry form. Please note the Land Registry will be unable to assist you if it turns out that the land concerned is unregistered, in which case you may wish to make enquiries locally with neighbours. Alternatively, if the land is subject to development proposals the Council's Planning Department will be able to provide information on recent planning applications received.

What if I can't find the information I am looking for on the New Forest Mapping System

We will need to know the boundaries of the land in question and if possible the full postal address.

Is there a charge for this information?

Not at present. However, dependent upon the future demand for this service, the Council may consider introducing a charge to offset the administrative costs.

How long will it take you to find out the information I have requested?

Again, this will be dependent upon demand and also upon the need for a detailed plan to be submitted to the Council.
