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.

Three sites have been entered onto Part 1 of 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.
