The Scottish Vacant and Derelict Land Survey (SVDLS) is a survey undertaken to establish the extent and state of vacant and derelict land in Scotland. The survey has been operating since 1988 and is managed by the Scottish Government Communities Analytical Services. Most Councils submit data annually with the Survey base date of 31st March. The data collected provides an invaluable source of information relating to vacant and derelict sites and assists in reinforcing and justifying national policy established to bring about the re-use and regeneration of these land resources. Dundee City Council conduct an annual survey where potential sites, identified in the preceding 6 months by Dundee City Council, are assessed for possible inclusion on the Scottish Vacant & Derelict Land register for that year. During the survey any site that has been redeveloped or regenerated are removed from the register and reported to Scottish Government. Scottish Government also provide Vacant & Derelict Land Funding (VDLF) to qualifying local authorities to facilitate the regeneration of land.

European Structural Funds are a series of financial tools set up with the explicit purpose of reducing regional disparities across the EU in terms of income, wealth and opportunity. Scotland’s Structural Fund Programmes for 2014-2020 consists of 2 programme areas: Highlands and Islands (with a GDP between 75% and 90% of the EU average), and the rest of Scotland which is made up of the other three NUTS II (Nomenclature of Territorial Units for Statistics3) regions (North Eastern Scotland, Eastern Scotland and South Western Scotland) all of whom have a GDP above 90% of the EU average. The Highlands and Islands has been designated as a transition region and the rest of Scotland as a more developed region. The categorisation of the two areas has an impact on the type of projects that the funds can be used to support.
Potential Development Areas designated in the Argyll and Bute adopted Local Development Plan 2015. These are broad areas identified by this plan in the Proposal Maps. They are mainly, but not exclusively on the edge of settlements and constitute land within which opportunities may emerge during the plan- period for infill, rounding-off, redevelopment or new development. Such opportunities are not currently fully resolved and issues may require to be overcome in terms of the ‘mini development brief’ accompanying these PDAs before development opportunities within the PDA area can be realised and be supported by this plan. A PDA may include a number of identifiable development sites
