Notes:

Potentially land parcels/assets could be located in different UK Parliamentary Constituencies to the registered address of the community groups that own them.

2. For some land parcels/assets there are currently no area figures available. In many cases this relates to the purchase or transfer of an existing building to a community group. In these cases either the area of the footprint of the building is unknown or is too small to record so has been recorded as zero.

3. Community groups can own multiple land parcels/assets.

4. Scotland totals for area of land may not equal the sum of the constituent parts due to rounding.
