30 million transactions a year handled by the Land Registry


In beta development. The service will use the lessons from the recent Land Registry concept.


  • Land Registry and GDS developed a concept showing how a digital service could look
  • Land Registry and GDS employees have worked together as one team to build an alpha
  • Passed alpha Digital by Default Service Standard assessment in October 2014


  • Split location with development team based in Plymouth means lost development time due to travel, amplified by many people on annual leave


  • Develop the beta service
  • Continue user research throughout the beta phase
  • Programme planning for digital change inside the agency
