Housing Delivery Test Action Plan
In January 2021, the Government published their third Housing Delivery Test (HDT) results that measure net additional dwellings provided in a local authority area against the homes required. The latest HDT looks at the cumulative housing target achieved for the three-year period of 2017/18 - 2019/20. The results of the test show that the Legacy Corporation has achieved 98% of its cumulative target for the same period. This shows that the Legacy Corporation has passed the last housing delivery test.
In response to the past two HDT results, the Legacy Corporation has prepared two Action Plans, please see below. The progress of the actions set out within the Action Plans will continue to be monitored on annual basis and the result will be reported with the LLDC Authority Monitoring Report.

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 2020, 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 sites were reviewed against the local definition of brownfield land. Given that the construction commenced on site LLDC3, the site was removed from the Register in December 2019.
Please see below for links to maps showing the 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:
Sites removed in December 2019 from 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.
2020 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 were proposed to be entered to the Register in 2020.
The Legacy Corporation has also reviewed the status of the sites included on the Register against a local definition of brownfield land. There were no other changes in relation to the status of the remaining two sites (LLDC1 and LLDC2) and they remain on the 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 (December 2020).
