Under Environmental Information Regulations (EIR) if you wish to inspect the data needed for a CON29 please make a written application or emailing direct to Freedom of information (FOI) Officer providing the following:
- The address of the property required
- Plan of the property/land in question clearly marked at 1250 or 2500 scale

The FOI Officer will contact the departments for the answers to the relevant questions and will arrange a time for you to inspect the appropriate information at the Council offices. There is no fee charged.
- You can request the local land charge section to complete a report on your behalf. A report will be compiled and the completed report will be emailed direct to you. There is a charge for this service as set out on the application form. An application form is available on the download tab at the top of this page. To submit the application please complete the form, and then you can email, post, or leave the completed form on Customer Services together with a location plan of the property required. Our address is Council Offices, Kesteven Street, Sleaford, Lincolnshire, NG34 7EF, and mark it for the attention of Local Land Charges.
The compiled answers will be provided on a report. This report is recorded on the Land Charge computer system and a replacement copy of the report can be provided. Contact the local land charge section if you need a replacement.
Please note that if you choose to ask the local land charge to do the work for you there will be a fee which allows the Council to recover its reasonable maintenance and support costs for this necessary open access on a cost recovery basis. The details of the fees for each question are on the download application form. Payment should be either by cheque, credit/debit card or a pre-arranged account.
