Details

A classification has been developed which allocates all identifiable land features on Ordnance Survey MasterMap into 9 simplified land categories and an additional ‘unclassified’ category.

These are:

  • domestic buildings
  • non-domestic buildings
  • roads
  • paths
  • rail
  • gardens (domestic)
  • green space
  • water
  • other land uses (largely hardstanding)
  • unclassified

The statistics have been calculated for each Census ward (as defined in 2003), and are presented here along with an explanatory paper.

GLUD data were previously available on ONS’s Neighbourhood Statistics website. Following this website’s closure the data has been added to GOV.UK so the data is available online.
