General boundaries

Land measurement for planning and development purposes, Guidance Note, Global 1st edition, Published by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) in May 2021, states: ‘Parts of the UK operate a general boundaries system, which has limitations that need to be understood. The title plan shows the general position of the boundaries; it does not show their exact line. Measurements scaled from such plans may not match measurements between the same points on the ground. When a land registry shows a general boundary on a title plan, it means that somewhere nearby there is an exact legal boundary. Other national systems rely on various forms of determined boundaries (see Boundary).’
