Brownfield Land Register

Local planning authorities in England are required to prepare a Brownfield Land Register in accordance with the Town and Country Planning (Brownfield Land Register) Regulations 2017.

The register provides information in a standard way across all local planning authorities in England, for brownfield land considered suitable and available for housing-led development.

We update our Brownfield Land Register every year.

The register contains a list of brownfield land which is considered suitable for housing development in North East Lincolnshire, and includes information for each site on:

  • The planning status of the site, for example whether it already has planning permission?
  • An estimate of the potential number of dwellings.
  • Ownership status.
  • Any relevant constraints that would need to be mitigated in the event of development.

In order to identify which sites are considered to be Brownfield, the sites will be selected using specific criteria, including whether they are:

  • Available for development.
  • In a suitable location with regard to local and national planning policy.
  • Able to support at least 5 dwellings, or are at least 0.25 hectares.
  • Free of planning constraints that could not be overcome for future housing development.

Further information about the purpose of Brownfield Land Registers can be found on the Governments website at:

The brownfield land register consists of two parts:

Part 1 – will include all brownfield sites that the Council consider appropriate for residential development.

Part 2 – comprises only those sites in Part 1 where the Council has decided the land would be suitable for a grant of Permission in Principle for housing-led development.

Permission in Principle is designed to separate decision making on ‘in principle’ issues (such as land use, location and amount of development) from matters of technical detail (such as what the buildings will look like. Before development can commence on a site a technical details consent will be required.

Part 1 of the brownfield land register has been completed. We have not completed Part 2 as almost all the sites have the benefit of planning consent.
