Brownfield Land Register
Local planning authorities are required by the Government to prepare and publish a Brownfield Land Register of previously developed (brownfield) land within their area that is considered suitable for residential development. The preparation and publication of the register is governed by the Town and Country (Brownfield Land Register) Regulations 2017.
The Government' aim is for the Brownfield Land Register to improve the quality and consistencies of data on brownfield land held by local planning authorities. There is published guidance on understanding the Brownfield Land Register and frequently asked questions.
