The Council has prepared a Brownfield Register, in line with requirements published in April 2017.
The Register consists of two parts. Part 1 seeks to establish a list of sites that the Council considers to be suitable, available and viable for potential residential development. This should not be seen as a guarantee of planning permission however. Sites on Part 1 of the Register can be viewed on the interactive map below.
Part 2 is a list of sites on which the Council wishes to apply 'Permission in Principle'. Permission in principle is essentially an outline planning permission the Council grants on a suitable site which is considers has the potential to be delivered within 5 years. Any interested developers will subsequently only need to apply for permission for outstanding matters on the site, thus hopefully stream lining the planning process.
Sites on Part 1 include:
There are currently no suitable sites on Part 2 of the Register. This will be reviewed in the 2018 update.
