- Land within the area of the relevant authority.
- Licences to occupy land in the area of the relevant authority for a month or longer.
- Corporate tenancies where the landlord is the relevant authority; and the tenant is a body in which the relevant person has a beneficial interest.
- Securities - Any beneficial interest in securities of a body where:
- that body (to your knowledge) has a place of business or land in the area of the relevant authority; and
- the total nominal value of the securities exceeds £25,000 or one hundredth of the total issued share capital of that body; or
- if the share capital of that body is of more than one class, the total nominal value of the shares of any one class in which the relevant person has a beneficial interest exceeds one hundredth of the total issued share capital of that class
