Brownfield Land Register

The Brownfield Land Register is a list of previously developed sites that may be suitable for residential development or are already under construction for residential development.

To be included on the Register, sites must be previously developed land and meet all of the following criteria:

  • At least 0.25 hectares in size or capable of supporting at least five dwellings
  • Meet the Government's criteria for being suitable, available and achievable for residential development as set out in the government regulations

Sites on the Register come from the Strategic Housing Land Availability Assessment, existing planning permissions and pending planning permissions.

The register is split into two parts:

  • Part One - A list of brownfield sites across the District that are suitable for residential development, regardless of their planning status
  • Part Two - A list of the sites from Part One which the Council has chosen to grant 'permission in principle'

"Permission in principle" approves the core principles of development including the use, location, and scale of development.

The Brownfield Land Register does not affect the status of sites that already have planning permission for residential development. Any other sites in Part One of the Register do not have any formal status, and their inclusion on Part One of the Register does not guarantee that planning permission will be granted for residential development in the future.

There are currently no sites included on Part Two of the Register.
