Brownfield Land Register

The Town and Country Planning (Brownfield Land Register) Regulations 2017 require Local planning authorities to prepare, maintain and publish a Brownfield Land Register. The Register comprises a list of Previously Developed (or Brownfield) sites that have the potential to accommodate residential development.

The Register comprises information about sites, as set out in Government guidance. It must be kept in two parts, using a standard format:

  • Part 1 comprises all sites categorised as Previously Developed Land (PDL)

  • Part 2 is a subset of the Part 1 Register and comprises sites that the Council deems suitable to grant 'Permission in Principle (PiP)'. PiP is similar to an outline planning permission in that it establishes the fundamental principles of development (in terms of the use, location and number of homes). A further Technical Details Consent is required prior to any development commencing.

In order to be entered onto the Brownfield Land Register, sites must qualify as Previously Developed Land (PDL) (see Annex 2 of the National Planning Policy Framework for a definition of PDL), and be:

  • A minimum of 0.25 hectares or be capable of accommodating at least 5 dwellings - although smaller sites may also be considered

  • Suitable - sites must be appropriate for residential use or a residential-led mixed use scheme, and must comply with national and local planning policies

  • Available - there must be a demonstrable landowner/developer intention to sell or develop the site

  • Achievable - sites must be developable within the next 15 years

The register can include sites allocated in the Local Plan or sites from other sources, regardless of whether they already have planning permission, provided they meet the criteria above.

Local planning authorities must publish their first Brownfield Land Register by 31 December 2017 and review their register at least once a year.

Part 1 of our Brownfield Land Register is available to download from the downloads section.

The register is available in csv and Excel formats, in accordance with Government guidance. By clicking on any of the web links in the SitePlanURL column of the register a new window will open to display a pdf map showing the boundary of that site. The pdf site maps are also available to download at the bottom of this web page.

We may opt to publish Part 2 in a subsequent annual update to the register. Should this occur, and as sites that we may propose for that part of the register are subject to consultation, we will provide information on this later once a timescale is agreed and known. If you wish to discuss any of the sites on the register once it has been published, then please contact Planning Policy on 01483 444471.

If you wish to submit a site for consideration for inclusion in the next update of the Brownfield Land Register or Land Availability Assessment (LAA), then please ensure that you submit it to us by 31 October 2018. For information on the LAA and details of how to submit a potential site to us, please visit the Land Availability Assessmentweb page.

Please note that most of the sites in the Brownfield Land Register are privately, rather than publicly owned. The Council is not required to, and does not hold details of individual landowners of these sites, nor does it hold prices or have any control over their future sale. The Land Availability Assesssment provides the names of landowners for some sites in the 'availability' section of the site proformas, where these details are known, however this information would only have been correct at the date of publication. To obtain up-to-date ownership details for any site, the Council advises that people contact HM Land Registry.
