Brownfield Land Register & Permission in Principle

Brownfield Land Register (October 2020)

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.

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 a combination of continuous housing monitoring exercises; its latest Annual Position Statement (APS) and previously 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 register was most recently updated on 30 October 2020. The council will continue to monitor sites and make changes to the register when necessary. It should therefore be noted that the Brownfield Land Register is a live working document.

The brownfield sites included on the register can be viewed on an interactive map.

The sites that have been identified are considered to be suitable, available, achievable and have an area of at least 0.25ha or are capable of supporting at least five dwellings.

Permission in Principle

Part 2 of the brownfield register consists of sites, which have been granted permission in principle.

The permission in principle consent route is an alternative way of obtaining planning permission for housing-led development. It has two stages:

  • First Stage (permission in principle application) – Establishes whether a site is suitable in principle for housing-led development.
  • Second Stage (technical details consent) – assesses the detailed development proposals such as access, scale, layout, design, drainage etc.

List of permission in principle applications received:
