Brownfield Land Register
In April 2017, the Government introduced a requirement for Local Planning Authorities to publish a Brownfield Land Register and update it annually. The most recent version of the register was published in December 2021. The register provides information on previously developed (brownfield) sites which offer potential for housing development that meet certain criteria. The register comprises a set of standard information prescribed by Government.
Registers can have two parts:
Part 1 comprises all brownfield sites considered appropriate for residential development, including sites with extant full planning permission, outline planning permission and permission in principle as well as sites without planning permission
Part 2 comprises only those sites in Part 1 that the local planning authority has decided that the land would be suitable for granting permission in principle for residential development.
We don’t currently consider any sites suitable for Part 2.
Criteria for inclusion on the Register
The Brownfield Land Register provides information on all known brownfield sites in the borough which are 0.25 hectares or larger, are available and achievable for development and are considered suitable for housing. The Register contains suitable sites identified in the Strategic Housing and Economic Land Availability Assessment (SHELAA) and also qualifying sites with planning permission.
How to submit a site for consideration
To submit a site for potential inclusion on the register, you will need to provide a plan of the site clearly showing its boundaries and other relevant site information including ownership and current planning status. These details should be sent to the email address below using the form at the bottom of the page. Also, please contact us if you have any updates on sites included in the register.
The Register will be updated as a minimum on an annual basis. The most recent version was published in December 2021.
