What is the register?

Our Brownfield Land Register lists Previously Developed Land (PDL) that could accommodate future residential developments.

Learn more about PDL

The register has two parts: 

  • Part 1 lists all PDL 
  • Part 2 shows which sites we will grant Permission in Principle (PiP) for.  

Part 1 is updated annually in December. We may opt to publish Part 2 in a future annual update to the register once a timescale is agreed.

Sites on the register can come from any source. They generally include allocations in the Local Plan, sites with planning permission and sites submitted by landowners. Any site which meets the criteria in Regulation 4 of The Town and Country Planning (Brownfield Land Register) Regulations can go on the register, even if it does not have planning permission.  

Some areas of PDL are not in the register. We could still consider these sites appropriate for residential development. 

Inclusion of a site on the register does not mean that it will be granted planning permission. All sites will be assessed through the normal planning application process.

You can  download Part 1 of the Brownfield Land Register as a csv file (gi.ui.mediatype.csv) [42KB] . The planning status of sites was correct as of 28 June 2021. 

Sites with data in the 'EndDate' column are no longer considered available. Check the 'Notes' column to see why.

The Council does not hold landowner details for privately owned sites. The Land Availability Assessment provides this information for some sites, but this was up to date only as of the date of publication. For more up to date information, contact HM Land Registry.
