Housing Delivery Test Action Plan
The housing delivery test was introduced by the Government in 2018 to measures net additional dwellings provided in a local authority area against the homes required. The first Housing Delivery Test results (2018) were released in February 2019 covering the period of 2015/16 - 2017/18. The second set of HDT (2019) results were published in February 2020 for the following three-year period (2016/17, 2017/18, 2018/19).
The first results of the HDT suggest that the Legacy Corporation has achieved 52% of its housing target, the second result suggests that it has achieved 69% of its target over the next three-year period. Consequently, the Legacy Corporation has prepared the second Action Plan 2019/20 to analyse the initial performance of the actions set within the fist Action Plan and where relevant update them or identify new ones. The Action Plan also responds to the requirements of the latest HDT results.

Brownfield Land Register
What is the Brownfield Register?
As part of its commitment to the delivery of housing on brownfield land the Government has introduced the requirement within the Brownfield Land Regulations (2017) that each local planning authority publish a Brownfield Land Register by 31 December 2017. Brownfield, or previously developed land is defined by the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF).
There are two relevant parts to the Register. Part 1 should include brownfield sites of over 0.25ha or are capable of supporting at least 5 dwellings, which are considered suitable, available and achievable for housing development, irrespective of their planning status. The inclusion of a site within Part 2 of the Register effectively grants Permission in Principle (PiP) for residential development. Each register must conform to relevant data standards and keep an up to date record of this standard set of information. There is no specific requirement to enter any sites onto Part 2 of the Register.
For more information on the Brownfield Register and Permission in Principle see the relevant pages of the GOV.uk website.
The LLDC Brownfield Register
The LLDC Brownfield Register, as updated in December 2019, has been compiled using the data standard and can be viewed and/or downloaded below:
In 2017, three sites were entered onto Part 1 of the register. As part of the annual review, in December 2019 these siteswere reviewed against the local definition of brownfield land. Given that the site LLDC3 is now under construction, the site has been removed from the Register. Please see below for links to maps showing these site boundaries. As per the guidance, LLDC has applied a 0.25ha threshold or sites capable of delivering 5 dwellings and more.
Current sites on the Brownfield Register:

The Legacy Corporation is required to review and update the Brownfield Land Register on an annual basis. More information on how the Legacy Corporation met the commitment to review the Brownfield Register can be find below.
2019 Review of the Brownfield Register
The Call for Sites remained open throughout the year allowing anyone who considers that there are additional sites which are over 0.25ha or 5 dwellings and more to propose them to be included on the Brownfield Register. No new sites have been proposed since the last Review in 2018.
The Legacy Corporation has also reviewed the status of the sites already included on the Register against a local definition of brownfield land. Given that the site LLDC3 (a parcel of SA4.1) is now under construction, the sites has been removed from the Register. There are no other changes in relation to the other two sites.
For more information on how the Legacy Corporation met the commitment to review the Brownfield Register as required by Regulation 17 of the Town and Country Planning (Brownfield Land Register) Regulations 2017 please see the Statement of Review of the Brownfield Register (December 2019).
2018 Review of the Brownfield Register
As part of Regulation 18 Consultation run between 6 November 2017 and 29 January 2018, the Legacy Corporation carried out a ‘call for sites’ process, when we asked local residents, landowners, developers and other interested parties to submit sites for consideration for inclusion within the review of the Local Plan and the updated Register. In total 7 of the submitted sites expressed a desire for inclusion.
The Legacy Corporation has conducted a detailed review of these sites contained within the Sites Report produced in support of the Regulation 19 Revised Local Plan. This also included an assessment of whether each site meets the criteria of the Brownfield Land Register. It was found that no new sites met the criteria and therefore new sites are proposed for inclusion within the Brownfield Register.
For more information on how the Legacy Corporation met the commitment to review the Brownfield Register as required by Regulation 17 of the Town and Country Planning (Brownfield Land Register) Regulations 2017 please see the Statement of Review of the Brownfield Register (November 2018).
If you consider that there are additional sites which are over 0.25ha or 5 dwellings and more should be included on future versions of the Brownfield Register, please complete the Call for Sites form below. Please also use these details for any queries relating to the Register.
