Dear Department for Communities and Local Government,

I am writing to make an FOI request under the Freedom of Information Act 2000. In August 2015 you published a statistical release entitled 'Land Use Change Statistics in England: 2013/14'. It contains statistics regarding (amongst other things) developments on green belt land. Several 'live tables' accompanied this release including the tables:

'Address Change: Proportion of new residential addresses created in the Green Belt by previous land use' (P310)

'Address Change: District authorities - Proportion of new residential addresses in the Green Belt' (P311) and,

'Land Use Change: Percentage of land changing to developed use that was within designated Green Belt' (P381)

'Land Use Change: Land changing to residential use within the Green Belt, by previous use' (P382)

'Land Use Change: Land area changing to residential use in the Green Belt' (P383)

Can you supply me,
i). The raw datasets used to compile table P311- this would include a list of all new residential developments (addresses) in England from 2013-14 sorted by district authority and whether they were built on greenbelt or non-greenbelt land

ii). The raw datasets used to compile table P382- this would include a list of all new residential developments (addresses) in England from 2013-14 sorted by district authority
and the type of previous land-use

iii). The raw datasets used to compile table P310

iv). The raw datasets used to compile table P383- if possible this would include a list of all new residential developments in England from 2013-14 including the land area of each development

v). The raw datasets used to compile table P381.

Thank-you.

Yours faithfully,

Chris Baines
