Brownfield Land Register (BLR)
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.
Guidance on brownfield land registers can be found within the national Planning Practice Guidance.
The BLR draws on information about land available for development from a variety of sources, including submissions to the Council throughout the year. A link to the Planning Policy Committee Meeting in which our BLR was established can be found here.
Consultation on previous drafts of the Brownfield Land Register can be found on our Consultation Portal.
The published BLR only consists of Part 1 sites - there are no sites suitable to be included on Part 2 of the register. This means that the Council has not granted Permission in Principle (PiP) to any sites.
