Details

This is the third publication of the land use change statistics using a methodology based on changes in Ordnance Survey products rather than from the physical observations that informed the previous series. It provides estimates for 2015 to 2016 on the creation and deletion of residential addresses and changes in density.

The first version of the statistical release published on 30 November 2016, provided information on changes in residential addresses in terms of the location and type of change. It noted that the section on changes in land usage (as expressed in numbers of hectares) had been omitted because quality assurance procedures were ongoing.

Since November, departmental statisticians have continued to work closely with Ordnance Survey staff, who have now produced a revised land usage dataset. These are reflected in the final version of the statistical release, published on 2 March 2017.
