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.
A council development plan may designate a green belt around a city or town to support the spatial strategy by: - directing development to the most appropriate locations and supporting regeneration; - protecting and enhancing the character, landscape setting and identity of the settlement; and - protecting and providing access to open space. This dataset has been developed as a polygon layer.
The Perth and Kinross Employment Land Audit is prepared annually to provide up to date and accurate information on the supply and availability of employment land for business and industrial use within the Perth and Kinross Council area. This audit has been prepared from information provided in the Local Development Plan and through the monitoring of planning application approvals.
Tell Me Scotland is a portal for accessing public information notices issued by local authorities across Scotland. The site allows users to: - Search for public notices such as planning and licensing in an area - Check roadworks and restrictions on any chosen route - Search archived notices across the country - Register to receive alerts by text or email on notices in an area - Select an area on the map, or from the list below to view notices in that area This service is supported by an API that allows REST queries returning data in JSON or XML format. The API allows GET requests for notices in bulk, individually, by type (Planning, Traffic, General, Licensing and Councillor Surgeries) and also details and lists of organisations. The API also allows POST request for upload of notices by authorised users and organisations. In order to access the data via the API, a TellMeScotland account is required with REST read-only permissions and associated authorisations. https://www.tellmescotland.gov.uk/api/docs (for authorised users) https://www.tellmescotland.gov.uk (main website) To obtain a TellMeScotland account and associated authorisations, users should contact firstname.lastname@example.org It is also possible to register individually for notice alerts, or to view the website as an unregistered user, but this does not allow direct access to the API.
Grit Bin Locations (Moray)
A survey issued by the Scottish Government to establish the extent & state of vacant & derelict land in Scotland. Local Authorities return data to the Scottish Government for checking.
All local authorities will receive planning applications for renewable energy sites. Some local authorities have provided us with such data, from which we have selected only approved and/ or operational sites. We have also received separate files of data showing renwable energy sites - both as point and polygon, and we have attempted to merge all of this data together to form a national dataset.
Summary The NFI definition of woodland is a minimum area of 0.5 hectares under stands of trees with, or with the potential to achieve, tree crown cover of more than 20% of the ground Areas of young trees, which have the potential to achieve a canopy cover of more than 20%, will also be\\ninterpreted as woodland and mapped. The minimum width for woodland is 20 m, although where woodlands are connected by a narrow neck of woodland less than 20 m wide, the break may be disregarded if less than 20 m in extent. Intervening land classes such as Roads - all 'tarmac' roads should be excluded from the woodland area, but\\ninternal forest tracks, farmers tracks, rides etc. will be included as part of the woodland if < 20m wide. Rivers - where the gap in woodland is 20m then rivers will be excluded from the woodland area. Power lines etc. - where the gap in woodland is 20m then power lines will be excluded from the woodland area. Railways - all normal gauge railways should be excluded from woodland. Scrubby vegetation is included within this survey where low woody growth seems to dominate a likely woodland site. The definition of an open area is any open area that is 20m wide and 0.5 ha in extent and is completely surrounded by woodland. The woodland boundaries have been interpreted from colour aerial ortho-photographic imagery. For the base map, photographic images aimed to be no older than 3 years at the time of mapping (i.e. areas mapped in 2007 would be based on photographs that were ideally taken no earlier than 2004). As the map is be the basis for a longer rolling program of sample field surveys it has been necessary to develop procedures to update the map to the date of the field survey, currently 2011, for the purpose of reporting on the current phase. The map is continually updated on an annual basis. These updates will are achieved by a combination of remote sensing and updated aerial imagery analysis for changes in the woodland structure and with reference to available new planting information from grant schemes and the FE sub-compartment database. Ordnance Survey MasterMap® (OSMM) features have been used as a reference for capturing the woodland boundaries. OSMM is the most up to date large-scale digital map of GB providing a seamless database for 1:1250, 1:2500 and 1:10000 survey data. All woodland (both urban and rural, regardless of ownership) which is 0.5ha or greater in extent, with the exception of Assumed woodland or Low density areas that can be 0.1ha or greater in extend, as been mapped Woodland that is less than 0.5ha in extent will not be described within the dataset but will be included in a separate sample survey of small woodland and tree features. The primary objective is to create a new digital map of all woodland in Great Britain using O.S.MasterMap features as boundaries where appropriate. The map shows the extent of all woodland of 0.5 ha. Woodland categories are defined by IFT (Interpreted Forest Type) values. Detailed Woodland categories are: Broadleaved Conifer Felled Ground Prepared for New Planting Mixed - predominantly Broadleaved Mixed - predominantly Conifer Young Trees Coppice Coppice with Standards Shrub Land Uncertain Cloud or Shadow Low Density Assumed woodland Failed Windthrow/Windblow Non woodland categories are defined by the IOA (Interpreted Open Area) values. Detailed Non woodland\\ncategories are: Agriculture land Bare area Grass Open water Other vegetation Power line Quarry River Road Urban Windfarm A full list of att6ributes can be found in the Data Lineage section.\\n\\n Any maps produced using this data should contain the following Forestry Commission\\nacknowledgement: "Contains, or is based on, information supplied by the Forestry Commission. \\n© Crown copyright and database right [Year] Ordnance Survey ".
Scottish councils usually divide towns and country areas into catchments and children living in a catchment area will usually go to the same local school. Domestic properties typically have a catchment area for each of their local: - primary non-denominational (PN), - secondary non-denominational (SN), - primary denominational/ Catholic (PD) and - secondary denominational/ Catholic (SN) schools. This dataset contains four separate layers (representing those above categories), which we deliver together as one single web service or zip folder. These data layers do not contain the catchment areas for Jordanhill primary and secondary school catchments which is located in west Glasgow. This is because it is a Scottish Government-funded school. This data will be provided by other data publishers in due course.
Scottish legislation (Section 17) of the Flood Risk Management (Scotland) Act 2009 dictates that records of culverts must be created and maintained. Specifically: (1) Every local authority must prepare a map which shows (or more than one map which, taken together, show) relevant bodies of water and sustainable urban drainage systems in its area. (2) Each map must - (a) be prepared by such date as the Scottish Ministers may direct, (b) be prepared at a scale that the authority considers most appropriate, and (c) contain such information and be in such form as the Scottish Ministers may specify in regulations. (3) A local authority must, from time to time, review and where appropriate update the map (or maps) prepared for its area under subsection (1). (4) A local authority must make available for public inspection the map (or maps) prepared under this section for the time being applicable to its area. (5) In this section and section 18 - “relevant body of water” - (a) means - (i) a body of surface water other than a stretch of coastal water, or (ii) a body of underground water forming part of a watercourse (but not including a watercourse which is wholly underground), but (b) does not include sewers and drains which drain into sewers, “sustainable urban drainage system” has the meaning given in section 59(1) of the Sewerage (Scotland) Act 1968 (c.47). Most Local Authorities have contributed (natural) culvert data to the new OS MasterMap Water Network Layer either through providing data to the Scottish Government or through the James Hutton Institute. As this data is now live, a mechanism for managing/maintaining/updating this data needs to be put in place. SCOTS (Society of Chief Officers for Transportation in Scotland) have approved for this dataset to be managed by the Spatial Hub and any amended data can be uploaded (and potentially downloaded) before being shared with OSMA members and the OS. We have initially created a point and line data layer representing the data we have been sent by some LAs. However, we really need line data in order for it to be merged into the OS MasterMap Water Network Layer data in due course. The LA "culverts" data as included in the OS MasterMap Water Network Layer is also available for LAs to download and use as part of this dataset
