Site Criteria for Brownfield Land Register

Sites will only be considered for the Brownfield Land Register that meet the following criteria:

  • The land has an area of at least 0.25 hectares or is capable of supporting at least 5 dwellings;
  • The land is suitable for residential development;
  • The land is available for residential development;
  • Residential development of the land is achievable within 15 years of site entry date; and
  • The land is previously developed land, as defined in the NPP

    Previously developed land: Land which is or was occupied by a permanent structure, including the curtilage of the developed land (although it should not be assumed that the whole of the curtilage should be developed) and any associated fixed surface infrastructure. This excludes: land that is or was last occupied by agricultural or forestry buildings; land that has been developed for minerals extraction or waste disposal by landfill, where provision for restoration has been made through development management procedures; land in built-up areas such as residential gardens, parks, recreation grounds and allotments; and land that was previously developed but where the remains of the permanent structure or fixed surface structure have blended into the landscape.

The sites submitted to us which meet the definition of previously developed land will be assessed to check their suitability, availability, achievability and deliverability. We may need to contact you for additional information. Sites listed within the Brownfield Land Register are expected to be subject to the approval of further details prior to development taking place. If details of a site are provided it doesn’t automatically mean that it will be added to the register or granted planning permission in the future.
