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
The register provides up-to-date and consistent information on previously developed sites in the district we consider to be appropriate for residential development having regard to the criteria set out in the legislation. It is reviewed annually.
The aim is to help provide certainty for developers and communities and encourage the development of suitable brownfield sites.
We'll be able to trigger a grant of GOV.UK: Permission in principle for residential development for suitable sites in the register where we've followed the procedures outlined in the legislation.
This includes sites with extant full planning permission, outline planning permission and permission in principle as well as sites without planning permission.
If we think that permission in principle should be granted for a site, we're required to enter the site in part 2 of the register. Part 2 is therefore a subset of part 1.
At the current time we have not entered any sites onto part 2 of the register.
You can view the brownfield sites on the Interactive map: Brownfield register or download the document below for a list of the sites.
