Land disposal cases - condition 17 of Network Rail's licence

Condition 17 of Network Rail's network licence safeguards against the inappropriate disposal of land assets.

It is important that land in which Network Rail has an interest and which may be important to the continuing operation and future development of the network, and services relating to railways, is not disposed of against the public interest.

We have adopted land disposal procedures for consultation and decision making pdf icon PDF, 527 Kb with a view to making the process efficient, effective and transparent.

See our land disposal page for details of our policy.
