Land ownership enquiries

We own property throughout the Bedford Borough district which is all held and published as publicly accessible record. 

Our property records are published in the Transparency section of our website under Local Authority Land. You will find a detailed list of property owned by Bedford Borough Council along with a link to an interactive map that can show our ownership and other useful information.

If you cannot find the land or building you are looking for, please contact us on the below details and we can confirm whether a property is within ownership of Bedford Borough Council.

In your letter you must include a plan of the area you are querying so that we can clearly identify the location and size of the land. Please include as much detail as possible such as street names, landmarks or measurements.

We aim to respond to all enquiries within ten working days of receiving your enquiry.

Bedford Borough Council only holds records for property owned by the Council.  If the property is not within ownership of the Council then Land Registry Online can provide information of ownership if the property has been registered.
