Planning statistics

Collection of planning statistics including planning performance statistics and vacant and derelict land statistics.

Planning performance statistics

Scottish Vacant and Derelict Land statistics

Scottish Vacant and Derelict Land statistics will not be published for the 2020 survey. The statistics publication has been suspended for this year because of limitations to survey returns due to COVID-19 pandemic related restrictions. It has not been 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.

Scottish Vacant and Derelict Land site register

Scottish Vacant and Derelict Land interactive maps

There are a few local authorities that provide interactive maps for their vacant and derelict sites.
