Scottish Vacant and Derelict Land statistics

2020 survey

Scottish Vacant and Derelict Land statistics was not published for the 2020 survey. The statistics publication was suspended for that year because of limitations to survey returns due to COVID-19 pandemic related restrictions. It was not possible to produce a robust set of Scotland figures or ensure the quality of the returns is consistent with previous years, particularly in relation to any potential new sites. Our statement gives further details of our approach to statistics publication during the pandemic.
