The Scottish Marine Regions are 11 areas established for the purposes of regional marine planning, defined by The Scottish Marine Regions Order 2015. These regions are sub-areas of both the "Scottish marine area" defined in the Marine (Scotland) Act 2010 and "Scottish inshore region" defined in the Marine and Coastal Access Act 2009. Marine planning will take place at a local level within these regions, where regional marine planning will be delegated to Marine Planning Partnerships (MPPs).

Information about Scottish schools are updated by the Scottish Government annually for the purposes of monitoring overall performance, equality and individual policies. This dataset provides the current geocoded location, contact address, roll numbers, teacher numbers, denomination, and proportion of pupils from minority and ethnic groups for each primary, secondary and special school in Scotland. Updates are normally published in the spring, and reflective of the previous September.
Allotments are plots of land that are rented by individuals or organisations for the purpose of growing fruit, vegetables and/or flowers. There are several allotment sites in Dundee but not all of them are run by the council itself. DCC has four sites: Arklay Terrace, Ancrum Road, Magdalen Green and Macaulay St. All the others are either private or devolved sites and are therefore responsible for their own charges and waiting lists so should be contacted directly. If you wish to be placed on the waiting list for a DCC allotment plot, please email firstname.lastname@example.org Allotment charges are currently set at £5.10 (£4.10 concession) per annum per pole (a unit of area of about 25 m2). Allotment sizes vary slightly so the total cost is different for each plot but a full size plot averages 10 poles and would therefore cost about £51 per year.
This data service provides subscribed academic institutions access to things like Ordnance Survey's premium datasets and Improvement Service's Local Government Spatial Hub datasets. Access is only available through paid subscription.

This dataset provides an Integrated Habitat Network (IHN) for native woodlands in Scotland. Its purpose is to aid the scoring process when assessing Forestry Grant Scheme (FGS) applications made under the SRDP (2014-2020) programme. It identifies three levels of information:- - core native woodlands - primary zones that are within a 'least-cost distance' of 500m - secondary zones that are within a 'least-cost distance' of 2,000m These latter two zones represent the differing dispersal abilities of generic woodland species across surrounding land which is not source native woodland.
This dataset is an amalgamation of data related to the Community Empowerment (Scotland) Act 2015 and the new duties this places on local authorities. Part 5: Asset Transfer Requests: Provides community bodies with a right to request to purchase, lease, manage or use land and buildings belonging to local authorities. Local authorities are required to create and maintain a register of land which they will make available to the public. Part 8: Common Good Property: Places a statutory duty on local authorities to establish and maintain a register of all property held by them for the common good. It also requires local authorities to publish their proposals and consult community bodies before disposing of or changing the use of common good assets. Part 9: Allotments: It requires local authorities to take reasonable steps to provide allotments if waiting lists exceed certain trigger points and strengthens the protection for allotments. Provisions allow allotments to be 250 square metres in size or a different size that is to be agreed between the person requesting an allotment and the local authority. The Act also requires fair rents to be set and allows tenants to sell surplus produce grown on an allotment (other than with a view to making a profit). There is a requirement for local authorities to develop a food growing strategy for their area, including identifying land that may be used as allotment sites and identifying other areas of land that could be used by a community for the cultivation of vegetables, fruit, herbs or flowers.
