Parliamentary debates and questions

S5W-16318: Alexander Burnett (Aberdeenshire West)

Scottish Conservative and Unionist Party

Date lodged: 2 May 2018

To ask the Scottish Government (a) how many hectares and (b) what percentage of (i) privately- and (ii) publicly-owned land has been registered on the land register in each year since April 2014.

Answered by: Roseanna Cunningham 14 May 2018

This is a question for the Keeper of the Registers of Scotland. She advises me that that the total number of additional hectares registered in each year since April 2014 is as follows:


2014-15: 58,456


2015-16: 120,115


2016-17: 94,491


2017-18: 137,514


Applicants for registration are not required to provide information on whether the land in question is public or private sector and therefore information is not held on the percentage of public and private sector land respectively that has been registered since April 2014.
