Brownfield Land Register
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 per cent of suitable brownfield sites have planning permission for housing by 2020. The Housing and Planning Act (2016) requires local authorities to prepare, maintain and publish a register of brownfield land. The register should identify previously developed sites in the district that we have assessed as being suitable for housing.
The register comprises a standard set of information, required by the Government in the Brownfield Land Register Regulations (2017), that will be kept up to date to encourage investment in local areas. The registers will also be used to monitor the Government’s commitment to the delivery of brownfield sites.
