Useful perspective on development coverage. How much of your area is built on?

The BBC has produced a database on UK land use. Using satellite images and local maps, the database makes approximate land use statistics available and readily accessible to everyone, showing the percentage of farmland, natural land, built on, and green urban land in every local authority in the country.

The figures show England is made up of 72.9% farmland, 14.5% natural land, 8.8% built on, and 3.8% green urban.

The database is available here:
