Question j05 :   Usage
   Buildings in rural areas are distinguished according to the amount and type of use: <strong>residential</strong>; <strong>public</strong> access (including churches, public halls, libraries etc); <strong>industrial or commercial</strong>; structures connected with <strong>agriculture or horticulture</strong> (including greenhouses); constructed <strong>boundaries</strong>; <strong>disused</strong> (including disused paved areas); structures in the process of <strong>construction or demolition</strong>. Note that constructed boundaries include constructed boundaries of other vegetated areas such as woodland, but that constructed boundaries closely associated with buildings are classified together with the buildings. Note that farm buildings used solely for human habitation follow path =<strong>residential</strong>, but farm buildings of mixed residential and agricultural use follow path = <strong>agriculture or horticulture</strong>.
