Scottish planning policy gives priority to the reuse not only of derelict land, but of vacant and underused land and buildings, which are sometimes referred to as brownfield land. The Executive has a number of funding streams, such as the £20 million vacant and derelict land fund, which aim to tackle the negative environmental impact of such sites.
