The Government requires local authorities to prepare and maintain a register of brownfield land that is suitable for residential development.
The Brownfield Land Register is in two parts:
Part 1 is a list of brownfield sites:
- that are of least 0.25 hectares or capable of supporting at least 5 dwellings;
- that are suitable for residential development;
- that are available for residential development; and
- where residential development of the land is achievable.
Part 2 includes those sites identified in Part 1 that the Council has decided should be granted ‘permission in principle’.
