Brownfield Land Register
The government wants to maximise the number of new homes built on brownfield (previously developed) land and has therefore made a commitment to introduce local brownfield registers through the Town and Country Planning (Brownfield Land Register) Regulations 2017.
As of September 2018, the council’s register (provided in a standard format set nationally) provides publicly available information on brownfield sites that are suitable for housing. The council has used its latest Housing Land Monitoring Report and the Strategic Housing Land Availability Assessment (SHLAA) which included a 'Call for Sites' exercise to identify potential residential sites on brownfield land in the borough.
The brownfield sites included on the register can also be viewed on an interactive map.
The sites that have been identified are considered to be suitable, available, achievable and potentially capable of supporting more than five dwellings.
