Brownfield Land Register

The Department for Communities and Local Government (DCLG) introduced legislation in 2017 that requires all local authorities to prepare, maintain and publish a Brownfield Land Register. This is a list of all previously developed land in the borough which is considered appropriate for residential development.

The sites must meet a set of criteria set out in the Town and Country Planning (Brownfield Land Register) Regulations 2017, and conform to all local, regional and national development policies. For more information, the Government has produced a guidance note answering some frequently asked questions on brownfield registers.

Bexley's Brownfield Land Register is available to view below as an interactive map, or to download as a spreadsheet in the CSV format.

Updating the register

The register is reviewed and updated at least once a year with new sites that meet the criteria being added to the register. Where a site is no longer considered to meet these criteria (for example, it is no longer available or suitable for residential development) an end date is added to its entry and it is retained on the register for historical information only.

Permission in principle

The register can be published in two parts. Part 1 contains all sites that meet the above criteria. Part 2 of the register is a subset of part 1 and contains those sites where permission in principle (PiP) has been granted by the Council.

For sites to be granted PiP, the council must first undertake the necessary requirements of publicity, notification and consultation.

At this stage, the Council has not granted any sites PiP, and as such has not produced Part 2 of the register

The regulations that introduced Permission in Principle can be found at Town and Country Planning (Permission in Principle) Order 2017.
