An originating authority may request the section to make an entry in the Local Land Charge Register, examples of Originating authorities are English Heritage, Water Authorities, Highways Agency, and other Local Authorities.
The charge may have restrictions on the use of the property or land which may affect the usage and enjoyment of the property or land. An example of a restrictive charge is a Tree Preservation Order.
The Local Land Charges Register is made up of 12 parts however the majority of charges for this council are in parts 3, 4 and 10.
