Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

I recently noticed https://osmlanduse.org has had a big update, particularly for the UK. There are far fewer gaps in the land classifications. I have previously use the gis_osm_landuse_a_free_1 files from the geofabrik downloads which I assumed were the same. However, I downloaded 'Wales' this morning and it is still very patchy.

Are these datasets linked and if not does anyone know if it is possible to get the OSMlanduse.org data as a spatial features file?

Many thanks in advance

According to the the Info & Contact on that page, since 2020 land use tags have been "predicted" when absent - maybe that explains the change you are seeing and the difference compared to geofabrik (which presumably contains only the actual OpenStreetMap landuse data).
