Brownfield Register

The Town and Country Planning (Brownfield Land Register) Regulations 2017 introduced a requirement for all local authorities to prepare and maintain a register of brownfield land that is suitable for residential development. 

The Council first published its brownfield land register on 21st December 2017 and last updated it in March 2020. The register is in a file format required by Government to ensure consistency across the country. 

The register will consist of two parts. Part 1 will consist of all sites which meet the criteria set out in the regulations as follows:

  • an area of 0.25 Hectares or is capable of supporting at least five dwellings (authorities can include smaller sites if they wish if they wish).

  • suitable for residential development;

  • available for residential development; and

  • residential development of the land is achievable.


Part 2 will consist of sites from Part 1 which the Council wishes to grant permission in principle. The Council has not yet identified any sites which it thinks should go onto the Part 2 register.  

Part 1 of the register does not allocate land or assume that planning permission will be granted for housing or any other form of development.
