Brownfield Land Register

The Borough Council is required to create and maintain a Brownfield Land Register.

The Brownfield Land Register identifies a number of eligible brownfield sites from around the Borough that the Council consider are suitable to accommodate residential development. Brownfield land is defined in the National Planning Policy Framework as;

"Land which is or was occupied by a permanent structure, including the curtilage of the developed land (although it should not be assumed that the whole of the curtilage should be developed) and any associated fixed surface infrastructure."

The latest Brownfield Land Register (BLR) (.csv) (18.0KB) (Downloads file) (Downloads File) with associated maps (Opens in a New Window) (Opens in a New Window) has to be published in a set format as required by the data standard requirement from Central Government. The BLR is divided into two parts (Part 1 and Part 2). Part 1 includes the sites that the Council considers suitable for residential development. Inclusion in Part 2 of the BLR means that sites will automatically be granted ‘permission in principle’, no sites within the Borough have been entered into Part 2 at the current time.

The BLR is based on the  Strategic Housing Land Availability Assessment (SHLAA) (Opens in a New Window) and will be updated annually.
