Brownfield Register - Parts 1 and 2

The Government has set out its commitment to introduce a statutory brownfield register and ensure that 90% of suitable brownfield sites have planning permission for housing by 2020. The registers are intended to set out information on brownfield sites which are suitable for housing development using a consistent set of information across council areas.

Technical description

The government requires local planning authorities in England to prepare, maintain and publish registers of previously developed (brownfield) land under Regulation 3 of the Town and Country Planning (Brownfield Land Register) Regulations 2017. Brownfield sites that meet the relevant criteria are entered in Part 1 of brownfield land registers. Sites entered in Part 2 of the brownfield land registers are granted permission in principle. The registers are reviewed annually.

Previously Developed (brownfield) Land Definition

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 has been occupied by agricultural or forestry buildings; land that has been developed for minerals extraction or waste disposal by landfill purposes where provision for restoration has been made through development control procedures; land in built-up areas such as private 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 in the process of time

Part 1 and Part 2 of the Register

Part 1 of a brownfield land register comprises all brownfield sites that Nottingham City Council has assessed as appropriate for residential development. It include sites with extant full planning permission, outline planning permission and permission in principle as well as sites without planning permission.

The register consists of information entered in a number of prescribed columns

Part 2 of a brownfield land register is a subset of Part 1. It comprises only those sites in Part 1 that the local planning authority has decided that the land would be suitable for a grant of permission in principle for residential development.

Sites included on the Register are located on brownfield land, are considered suitable for residential development, and be able to support at least 5 residential dwellings (net) and/or be larger than 0.25 hectares.
