Brownfield Land Register

The Register will help developers identify suitable sites quickly, speeding up the construction of new homes and maximising the number of new homes built on suitable brownfield land avoiding the need to build on less sustainable locations.

The Town and Country Planning (Brownfield Land Register) Regulations 2017 require local authorities to prepare and maintain a register of brownfield land that is suitable for residential development: Part 1 of the Brownfield Land Register.

The Regulations require the register to be updated at least once a year.

The current Dudley Council Brownfield Register was last updated in April 2021 and comprises the sites entered on our current Strategic Housing Land Availability Assessment (SHLAA), where the former use was brownfield, excluding open space and garden land sites: see the answers to the questions (below) for more detail on a site's eligibility for inclusion on the register.

The Town and Country Planning (Permission in Principle) Order 2017 states that sites entered on Part 2 of the Brownfield Land Register will be granted permission in principle.

Dudley Council currently has no Part 2 sites.

What is Brownfield Land?

Brownfield land is defined in the National Planning Policy Framework (Annex 2) as: Land which is or was occupied by a permanent structure, including the curtilage of the developed land (although it should not be assumed that the whole of the curtilage should be developed) and any associated fixed surface infrastructure.

This excludes:

  • land that is or has been occupied by agricultural or forestry buildings
  • land that has been developed for minerals extraction or waste disposal by landfill purposes where provision for restoration has been made through development control procedures
  • land in built-up areas such as private residential gardens, parks, recreation grounds and allotments
  • land that was previously-developed but where the remains of the permanent structure or fixed surface structure have blended into the landscape in the process of time

To be considered suitable for housing, sites must meet the above definition of brownfield land and must be:

  • Available (either in the short term within 5 years or in the medium term between 6 and 10 years
  • Capable of accommodating 5 or more dwellings or more than 0.25 hectares – although smaller sites may also be considered
  • Capable of development i.e. suitable for residential use and free from constraints that cannot be mitigated
