Information requested

You asked for the latest data for the past 5 years on land use change from agricultural to woodland creation (including the company or individual that applied) in Scotland.


While our aim is to provide information whenever possible, in this instance the Registers of Scotland does not have the information you have requested. The reason we don’t have this information is because we are not responsible for registering applications for formal changes to land use.

This information may be obtainable through local authorities and their individual planning departments.
