Brownfield Register

The government is committed to maximising the number of new homes built on suitable brownfield land and has set out its intention to ensure that 90% of suitable brownfield sites have planning permission for housing by 2020

What is the brownfield register?

The register provides up-to-date and consistent information on previously developed sites in the district we consider to be appropriate for residential development having regard to the criteria set out in the legislation. It is reviewed annually.

Aim of the Brownfield Register

The aim is to help provide certainty for developers and communities and encourage the development of suitable brownfield sites.

How we'll use the Brownfield Register

We'll be able to trigger a grant of GOV.UK: Permission in principle for residential development for suitable sites in the register where we've followed the procedures outlined in the legislation.

The Brownfield Register is in two parts

Part 1 lists all brownfield sites suitable for residential development

This includes sites with extant full planning permission, outline planning permission and permission in principle as well as sites without planning permission.

Part 2 only includes those sites granted permission in principle

If we think that permission in principle should be granted for a site, we're required to enter the site in part 2 of the register. Part 2 is therefore a subset of part 1.

At the current time we have not entered any sites onto part 2 of the Register.
