The Town and Country Planning (Brownfield Land Register) Regulations 2017 require the Council to prepare, maintain and publish a register of previously developed (brownfield) land.
Brownfield land register files
It is required that Brownfield land registers should be published in a ’csv’ format and an INSPIRE compliant polygon format. The update has also followed the requirements set out in the Government’s new Brownfield Land Register data standard (October 2019). For the avoidance of doubt, the new requirements to add the ‘EndDate’ field and to retain built out sites on the register has been incorporated. As part of this, new unique site references have been established to enable users of the information to track sites where the planning status of the site changes over time with the granting of new planning permissions.
As this spreadsheet format does not make for easy reading by members of the public, we have prepared a summary report to provide a more ‘plain English’ way of understanding the key information contained within the required Brownfield Land Register spreadsheet. This summary report and the required spreadsheets are available to view below:
- BDC Brownfield Land Register Summary Report 2022 (pdf document)
- BDC Brownfield Land Register 2022 (Excel format)
- BDC Brownfield Land Register 2022 (CSV format)
