Land ownership is a hot topic in the UK thanks to the current debate around land banking and delays in building on sites with planning permission.
Issues around land ownership exist equally in other nations around the world, and problems related to land ownership go far beyond just housebuilding.
Land Portal provides an important and useful tool for anyone who wants to explore and find out about land ownership. Let's take a look at what Land Portal aims to do.
About Land Portal
Helping cultures and nations communicate with one another has traditionally been the responsibility of diplomats, but the Land Portal Foundation takes the position that strengthening land ownership rights should done by local communities, and providing free open data is a step towards that aim.
The Land Portal website and services allow interested parties to access open data documents that help build connections and exchange ideas on the subject of land ownership rights. The Land Portal Foundation works to reduce the redundancy and duplication often found in open data, so that practical results may be obtained and donors find it easier to increase food security and reduce rural poverty.
