Brownfield land register

What is a Brownfield Land Register?

The Government has set out its commitment to introduce a statutory brownfield register and ensure that 90% of suitable brownfield sites have planning permission for housing by 2020. This is part of the aim to boost the supply of housing land and to deliver plans for increased house building.

The Housing and Planning Act (May 2016) makes provision for local authorities to prepare, maintain and publish a register of brownfield land. The register should identify previously developed sites in the district that we have assessed as being suitable for housing.

The register should comprise a standard set of information, prescribed by the Government, that will be kept up to date, and made publicly available, to help provide certainty for developers and communities and encourage investment in local areas. The registers will then be used to monitor the Government's commitment to the delivery of brownfield sites.

For more information about the Brownfield Land Register Regulations, please visit the Government's Legislation website.

Brownfield Land Register 2022

The brownfield register is divided into 2 parts:

Part 1 lists all brownfield sites considered suitable, available and achievable of delivering residential development. This includes sites both with and without planning permission.

Part 2 only includes those sites that the council have decided to trigger the granting of permission in principle. At the current time the council has not entered any sites onto Part 2 of the register.
