Brownfield Land Register

Government requires local authorities to publish a Brownfield Land Register by 31st December 2017. Brownfield land is land which has previously been developed.

The Brownfield Land Register comprises two parts:

  • Part 1 - contains a list of brownfield sites which are considered to be suitable housing that could provide five or more dwellings. The identified brownfield sites are located in designated Primary Residential Areas or Mixed-Use Areas, and the site could either be cleared or contain a building.

  • Part 2 - identifies brownfield sites that have been granted planning permission-in-principle for residential development. The council does not have any brownfield sites to be included in Part 2. Requests for a brownfield site to be included in Part 2 of the register and thus benefit from permission-in-principle will be considered following the council having undertaken the necessary requirements to publicise, notify and consult, taking into account any representations received.

The register has been prepared in accordance with national guidelines regarding the range of site-specific information, and is produced in the required .csv (Excel) format.

Information regarding individual sites relates to suitability of the site for housing development, however, it will not provide precise details of ownership, the intention of the owners, land/building sale price or valuation, nor should it be viewed by developers/investors as a comprehensive, one-stop source of housing development sites.

The information is base-dated to April 2017 and includes some sites that had commenced development at that date.

The council does not act as an intermediary or agent.
