Short description: EXTRACT: The following main points emerge from the 2009 survey: • There were 10,863 hectares of derelict and urban vacant land recorded in the 2009 survey, of which 2,640 hectares (24%) were urban vacant and 8,224 hectares were derelict (76%). • Since 2002, there has been a increase of 217 hectares in the total amount of derelict and urban vacant land recorded in the survey, from 10,646 hectares in 2002 to 10,863 hectares in 2009. This is attributable to the land that has been brought back into productive use or removed due to naturalisation being balanced by a small number of large sites falling out of use. • Since 2002, an average of 580 hectares of derelict and urban vacant land was brought back into use each year. The 2009 survey recorded 384 hectares of derelict and urban vacant land being reused since 2008. • The local authority with the highest amount of recorded derelict and urban vacant land is North Lanarkshire, containing 1,477 hectares (14% of Scotland total). Glasgow City has the second highest amount with 1,344 hectares (12% of Scotland total). North Ayrshire is third with 1,297 hectares (12%).
