Land Referencing

Land Referencing Services

LRS help to identify and consult with all affected parties who have an interest in land which may be affected by a project.

We offer a complete Land Referencing Service, providing a high quality, competitive and specialised service. LRS help to identify all parties who have an interest in land which may be affected by a project.

For example, this includes consulting with all affected parties, support for access licenses and environmental assessments. In addition, LRS assist with planning applications, land registration, public inquiries and land acquisition.

LRS have worked on CPO, DCO, TWAO and Hybrid Bill schemes of varying complexity. These include road, nuclear, rail, utility connections, gas storage and wind farms for both private and public-sector clients.

People with an interest in land include owners, tenants, occupiers and mortgagees. In addition, they include anyone who holds registered rights over land. Therefore those with access rights, sporting rights or the benefits of a restrictive covenant would be included.

How we achieve this

Non-contact Land Referencing

Firstly, we cross examine sources of information from Land Registry and various data searches, to identify people with an interest in land. At this stage a client may also wish LRS to conduct a sensitive non-contact site visit to establish any areas of concern. For example, land boundary verification, potential third-party interests and detailed site descriptions.

Contact Land Referencing

Working with ecologists, engineers and the design teams, LRS will collaborate and work up land requirements to define the red line boundary. Therefore, we will seek to contact and meet with each affected party that has an interest in all land affected. Our focus is to maintain clear dialogue and build rapport with affected parties to ensure identification of all parties, rights and interests.
