Brownfield register and permission in principle

Printer-friendly page
The Town and Country Planning (Brownfield Land Register) Regulations 2017 require local planning authorities to prepare and maintain registers of brownfield land suitable for residential development. The Town and Country Planning (Permission in Principle) Order 2017 provides that sites entered on Part 2 of the new Brownfield Land Registers will be granted permission in principle.

BLR Consultation

The Council consults annually on its draft Brownfield Land Register (BLR).

Details of the consultation can be found here.

The BLR draws on information about land available for development collected for the Council's Strategic Housing Land Availability Assessment (SHLAA). Details of the SHLAA are here. A link to the Planning Policy Committee Meeting in which our BLR was established can be found here.

The final BLR is published as part of the Council's Library of Documents at the end of each year.
