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.

This will require the retention of all features that contribute to the character and appearance of the conservation area.
