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 December 2022 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.
