Scottish Vacant and Derelict Land Survey 2018

Data collection undertaken to establish the extent and state of vacant and derelict land in Scotland.

This document is part of a collection

Annex D – Planning Authority participation

Not all local authorities participate in the survey every year:

  • Comparisons between years must be made with care and only for individual local authorities where suitable data exist.
  • Where a local authority has not provided data every year, the recorded change will be since the last survey, and will thus reflect several years’ worth of change.

1. See Annex Section A.11 for further details of the survey in Highland.

2. In the 2010 SVDLS bulletin (Annex E) summary figures were published for Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park.

3. From 2011 Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park took responsibility for surveying vacant and derelict land within the park boundaries. These sites are no longer recorded in Argyll and Bute, Perth and Kinross, Stirling and West Dunbartonshire local authority boundaries, and are separately identifiable as Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park from 2011. Prior to 2011 these sites were classified within the relevant local authority boundary.

4. Details of participation for years 1996 to 1999 can be found in the 2017 bulletin.
