This is the second publication of these statistics using a new methodology so results are not directly comparable to the historical series published between 1989 and 2013, the last year of data being for 2011. Estimates of land use change specifically are calculated in a significantly different manner. This release has revised all of the land uses estimates provided for 2013 to 2014 which now replace the previous values.

The land use change statistics show the amounts and location of land changing use in England. This statistical release provides details of the latest estimates for 2014 to 2015.
