Council Farms Statistics 2017/18 Actuals (Excel)


This publication provides detailed financial and other information on council farms/rural estates in England and Wales, including: the number and types of farm/rural estate; average size; acquisitions and disposals; tenancies; rent roll; capital expenditure on acquisitions etc and staff employed. It also includes operational and non-operational expenditure, including the cost of estate management.

As of 2015/16, the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) has started a collaboration with CIPFA on the collection of council farms, thus making the completion of the questionnaire a statutory obligation for England. CIPFA Council Farms data is used for the annual report to Parliament on Local Authority Smallholdings in England collated by Defra.
