Brownfield Site Register

Important Information

The pre-application and enquiry service has been TEMPORARILY SUSPENDED due to the high volume of applications we are receiving.

Pre-applications for major and strategic developments will continue to be accepted.

If you are seeking advice on whether planning permission would be required, please visit the planning guides and case studies page.

Alternatively you can submit a certificate of lawfulness application.

From 16th April 2017 a new duty has been placed on local planning authorities to prepare, maintain and publish a register of previously developed land (brownfield land) which is suitable for residential development. The register must be reviewed at least once each year.

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.

Town and Country Planning (Brownfield Land Register) Regulations 2017 makes provision for local authorities to prepare, maintain and publish a register of brownfield land. The register should identify previously developed sites in the borough that we have assessed as being suitable for housing.

The register comprises a standard set of information, prescribed by the Government that will be kept up-to-date, and made publicly available. The purpose of the register is to provide certainty for developers and communities and encourage investment in local areas. The registers will then be used to monitor the Government’s commitment to the delivery of brownfield sites.

The Brownfield Register is published under the Open Government Licence and is available in the following format:

 The register comprises:

  • Brownfield sites that have been granted planning permission and are either under construction (with no residential units completed) or not started
  • Brownfield sites that are allocated for residential development in our Adopted Local Plan (2012-2031) that have been assessed as being deliverable and developable against the criteria in the National Planning Policy Framework.
  • SHLAA Sites that have been assessed as being deliverable and developable against the criteria in the National Planning Policy Framework.
  • SHLAA Sites that were removed from previous SHLAA reports due to them being under the threshold or being retained for employment use at the time.
  • Othe suitable Brownfield sites.

The Brownfield sites register was updated in December 2020.

A total of 49 sites are included on the register. This includes the 7 end dated sites identified in the table above. Of the 49 sites, there are 4 new sites for this mornitoring period which did not feature on last years register.

The sites below have been end dated in the register following this annual review:
