For the first time, you can find out at the click of button exactly how the land is used in your local authority area.

Every council area in the UK has been analysed and individual maps produced showing how much of the area falls into four land categories:

  • Farmland
  • Natural
  • Built on
  • Green urban

The four categories are drawn from 44 different land use codes used by the Co-ordination of Information on the Environment (Corine) project initiated by the European Commission in 1985.

Using high-definition satellite images and detailed local maps, Corine offers a comprehensive picture of every corner of the United Kingdom. Now that information is readily available to everyone.
