Brownfield Land Register

The Brownfield Land Register is a requirement for all Local Planning Authorities through the Planning and Compulsory Purchase Act (2004) and the Town and Country Planning (Brownfield Land Register) Regulations 2017.

The Register encourages the reuse of brownfield sites or “previously development land” as defined by the National Planning Policy Framework and is intended to speed up the planning process for such sites.  The register focuses on the redevelopment of sites for residential use but can include other uses such as offices and retail provided they support a residential element. 

The Register comprises of two parts: 

  • Part 1 is compulsory for every Local Planning Authority and identifies all brownfield sites with full or outline planning permission.  It also contains brownfield sites that may be considered as appropriate for residential development, having regard to local and national policy; and
  • Part 2 is discretionary but does have prescribed details and actions. Sites included in Part 1 of the register can then be considered for inclusion in Part 2, where they can obtain ‘permission in principle’, subject to relevant publicity and consultation.  Part 2 is discretionary and is intended to speed up the planning process for redevelopment of brownfield sites.

A brownfield site is included in the register where it: 

  • has an area of 0.25 hectares or is capable of supporting at least five dwellings;
  • is promoted for residential development;
  • is achievable (development can take place within 15 years of the entry date); and
  • is suitable for residential development.

In addition to the above, the following points are also considered as part of the process to assess the suitability of brownfield sites for residential development.  This is in accordance with national guidance.

  • Any adverse impacts on the natural environment
  • Any adverse impacts on the local built environment, in particular on heritage assets
  • Any adverse impacts on the local amenity that such development might cause for intended occupiers or occupiers of neighbouring properties
  • The spatial strategy of the adopted and emerging Local Plans
  • National Policies and advice
  • Guidance issued by the Secretary of State

Previously Developed Land (PDL) was determined by South Oxfordshire District Council using the following methodology:

  • Permanent buildings/structures and hard surfaces including roads, car parks, storage land and hard surfaced recreation e.g. tennis courts were considered
  • Areas checked and decisions made using OS area use types and aerial photography
  • Areas considered to be integral to the use of the building, e.g. access were included as PDL
  • Where appropriate, the OS mastermap lines were followed
  • Where appropriate a straight-line continuation of a PDL area has been followed to complete the shape

The minimum net number of dwellings has been calculated by the information contained in the Strategic Housing and Economic Land Availability Assessment (SHELAA) published October 2017, or what has been give planning permission for if an extant permission exists.

Further information on the Brownfield Land Register can be found on the National Planning Practice Guidance website, which is available to view here:
