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. Only sites above the nationally set threshold of 0.25Ha will be considered for inclusion on the register unless special circumstances dictate otherwise.
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 2019 update.
