Search results provide information about any charges against a property such as outstanding planning permissions or listed building status.”It is expected to take several years to complete the project, largely because tens of thousands of documents have to be scanned and digitised at each council.Karina Singh (left), Director of Transformation at HM Land Registry, says: “Migrating Peterborough to our national LLC Register is a significant milestone for us as it’s the largest number of paper records that we’ve digitised so far.“This will make life easier for property buyers across the area, providing round the clock online access to the information they need.”Michelle Abbott, senior lawyer for Peterborough City Council, adds:“Speeding up the property-buying process benefits ourselves, our residents and our businesses.”Read more about the Land Registry’s LLC program.local land charge HM Land Regsitry Karina Singh Michelle Abbott peterborough council LLC February 3, 2020Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?

Powered by Firework A second-tier side from the Austrian football league, SK Austria Klagenfurt, have temporarily left their home ground in an effort to create a forest on the pitch. Yes, you read that correctly. The 32,000-seater Wörthersee Stadion, which hosted some games of the 2008 Euros, will now have more than 300 trees inside the arena thanks to Swiss artist Klaus Littmann, who proposed the idea on an exhibit named “For Forest: The Unending Attraction of Nature” in Klagenfurt’s stadium to raise awareness on climate change.Advertisement In an interview with the Reuters, the Swiss artist said, “For many, because of the current situation, this represents a memorial as part of the climate change discussion.”Advertisement An Austrian artist, Max Peintner who also happened to be an architect created a pencil drawing of a forest in the middle of a stadium surrounded by a crowd back in 1970. And Littmann, claims that his project was influenced from that drawing itself.” In 1970, he had the vision that one day, it could happen that we look at nature in designated areas only, for example in a crater architecture such as a stadium.” he added.Advertisement The exhibition is scheduled to open for public next week and has generated much curiosity among the people of Klagenfurt, the lakeside city in southern Austria.Meanwhile, SK Klagenfurt will be forced to play in a smaller stadium nearby until the For Forest exhibition ends on Oct. 27.[Credits IG/brfootball] Advertisementlast_img read more
