A Brownfield Register is a schedule of brownfield sites (also known as 'previously developed land') that are suitable for housing. To be considered for inclusion on the register, sites must meet the following criteria:
- Available - sites should be deliverable or developable. Deliverable sites are those that offer a suitable location for housing now and offer a realistic prospect of being under construction in the next five years. Developable sites are those sites likely to come forward later on (e.g. between six to ten years).
- Capable of supporting five or more dwellings or more than 0.25 hectares in size.
- Capable of development - sites should be free from constraints or, where there are constraints, these can be suitably mitigated.
The register includes sites with and without planning permission and is largely informed by the SHLAA (see above). There are two parts to the register. Part 1 comprises those sites that meet the criteria listed above. Part 2 includes sites where the council has granted 'permission in principle' for housing development (see below). The register is presented in two different formats below and is accompanied by a series of maps identifying their extents and locations. An ESRI 'shapefile' is available for viewing the sites in GIS programmes (e.g. ESRI ArcMap).

Part 2 - Permission in principle
Part 2 of a Brownfield Land Register is a subset of Part 1. The council has identified three sites for inclusion on Part 2 of the register. Following a period of consultation and consideration of all the relevant planning issues, 'permission in principle' has been granted on the sites listed below. Permission in principle is a new form of planning permission that seeks to agree with the use and scale of housing proposed. A further, more detailed permission would be required before any development could start.
Further details on the individual sites and the permission in principle process can be viewed on the council's Public Access website. Please use the reference numbers set out above.
