The Department for Communities and Local Government (DCLG) and Land Registry are hosting a high level Discovery session next Friday (7th February) aimed at exploring Land Registry's digital transformation journey and potential impacts and opportunities for local authorities.
The session, held at DCLG's Eland House in Victoria, aims to:
- speed-brief senior local authority managers on Local Land Charges, Land Registry data,
e-document registration services (eDRS) and Coal Authority services
- explain Land Registry's digital journey, including the current Local Land Charges project
- explore potential impacts on Local Authorities and practical ways of improving local-central collaboration.
Local government heads of service, CIOs and digital specialists are invited to the event, which will focus on the experiences of the Land Registry as it digitises its Local Land Charges (LLC) Register into a single central repository . The initiative is one of Government's 25 'exemplar' projects to showcase central government digital transformation .
The department's senior managers, including Commercial & Customer Strategy Director, Eddie Davies, will open a discussion with delegates on the impact of the LLC programme on local authorities, as well the potential hurdles - and how they can be overcome - as well as explaining the next steps and highlighting opportunities for co-designing services.
Other speakers include Lucie Glenday, Programme Director, Surrey County Council and Sheenagh Reynolds Assistant Director Digital, DCLG.
Register for the event. Please note places are offered on a first come first served basis. This event is not aimed at Local Land Charges officers or suppliers.
Registrants will be asked to complete a short online survey in advance of the event to inform discussions.
The event is part of the nationwide 'Local Digital Discovery' series from the Local Digital campaign, bringing together public sector digital leaders in local and central government to share lessons learned on digital projects. The campaign is managed by the DCLG with independent publisher UKAuthority.
