The National Land Use Database

The National Land Use Database a web site that provided a comprehensive, recent and consistent record of Previously Developed Land and Buildings in England for development, whether vacant, derelict or still in productive use (& as it happens a useful tool for scouting derelict land online ) has just been replaced by a group called: 'The Houses and Communities Agency', meaning that the database is no longer available on the net.
