Land Registration etc. (Scotland) Act 2012

Section 13: The cadastral map: further provision

61.Section 13(1) recognises that it is possible for plots of land to lie outwith the base map. For example, at present, the Ordnance Map does not extend to the seabed. This section allows the Keeper to map titles, such as seabed titles (which may be long leases for renewable energy projects), as the Keeper thinks fit. In practice, this section will allow seabed titles to be represented on the cadastral map by, for example, a dataset of co-ordinates.

62.Subsections (2) to (4) contain important powers for the Keeper to manage the cadastral map by dividing, removing and combining cadastral units. On doing so, the Keeper would be required by the combination of sections 3 and 12 to rationalise the title sheets that correspond to the cadastral units, and subject to transitional arrangements.
