Council land and property
We maintain records of all council-owned land and property.
If you wish to find out if we own a particular piece of land or property then you can contact:
County Property Division
Tel: 01629 536203
Fax: 01629 536266
In order to assist your enquiry we will need to know the boundaries of the land in question and if possible the full postal address.
It is often difficult to give a precise answer to queries handled over the telephone.
For a more precise answer we therefore recommend you submit a plan or map showing the exact boundaries of the land in question.
Enquiries about privately owned property
Enquiries about privately owned land should be made to the Land Registry (opens in a new window) at Nottingham West Land Registry Office on 0115 9351166
The estates team role
The estates team works on behalf of various departments and other government bodies, including the Fire and Rescue Service and Diocese of Derby, to provide a professional property advisory service.
This includes providing valuation advice and the negotiation of land and property acquisitions, disposals and management of existing land and property holdings.
Other work carried out by the estates team includes:
- asset management
- tenancy renewals
- service of notice to tenants and travellers
- rent reviews
- asset and rating valuations
- insurance valuations
- negotiation and agreement of compulsory purchase compensation claims
- representation on behalf of us in proceedings brought before the court/land tribunal/Local Government Ombudsman.
They also provide advice both internally and externally to the public as to whether land is owned or leased by us.
The overriding aim of the team is to ensure that the council obtains good value for money in all its property dealings.
