Data released for the first time by the Land Registry has revealed the UK-based companies and public bodies that own property across Britain.
The data covers all properties except those owned by private individuals, foreign-owned companies, charities and trusts.
In North Lincolnshire, the council is the big property owner - North Lincolnshire Council owns at least 1,394 sites, including offices and sites offering public services.
Ongo Homes was also among those owning large numbers of sites, with 802 plots in total, mostly made up of flats and houses across the area. It’s joined by the Guinness Partnership Limited, with 169 plots.
Utilities companies also own lots of infrastructure around the area, such as 461 plots belonging to Yorkshire Electricity Distribution PLC, mostly electricity substations, while Anglian Water Service Limited owns 131 and Severn Trent Water Limited has 102 sites, mostly pumping stations. Highways England Company Limited owns 243 plots.
It’s not just plots of land that are under corporate ownership, as various companies connected to A Shade Greener LLP are shown in the data to own the leasehold for around 1,212 blocks of airspace above homes in the area, most likely in connection to the provision of solar panels.
The Lincoln Diocesan Trust and Board of Finance Limited owns 92 sites across the area, while the Official Custodian for Charities owns 37.
