Brownfield Land Register

The Government has introduced a requirement for all Local Authorities to prepare a Brownfield Land Register for their area. The Brownfield Land Register provides publicly available information on Brownfield (previously developed) land that is suitable for housing and can be viewed on this page.

The council has used its Strategic Housing Land Availability Assessment (SHLAA) and current planning permission information to help identify Brownfield sites in the district.

The register has been prepared in line with the requirements set out in the Town and Country Planning (Brownfield Land Register) Regulations 2017. Only sites that meet the assessment criteria set out in these regulations are included on the register. Information on the register is correct up to the beginning of December 2019 and will be updated on an annual basis. The register consists of two parts:

  • Part 1 is a list of sites which could be considered suitable for housing
  • Part 2 is made up of sites taken forward from Part 1 of the register and given Permission in Principle (PIP).

Permission in Principle is a newly introduced consent and establishes the fundamental principles of development of a site in terms of its use and the approximate number of homes that the site can reasonably accommodate. It is similar in practice to an outline planning permission and further approval, in the form of 'technical details consent' is required in order for a site to be developed.

There are currently no sites included in Part 2 of the South Holland Brownfield Land Register. Further information can be found within national Planning Practice guidance on GOV.UK:
