The Derelict Sites Act requires that the owner and occupier of land ensure that the land or structures do not become or do not continue to be a derelict site.
The Act imposes duties on the Local Authority including a duty to serve a notice to the owner specifying works to be carried out to prevent or stop dereliction and also to acquire by agreement or compulsorily any derelict site.
Councils can also impose an annual levy on any derelict site in an urban area, based on 7% of its valuation. The full register can be viewed here
