You will find the Brownfield Land Register in multiple formats, and an interactive map showing the location of each site. If you require the data in an alternative format please contact SP&GTeam@bexley.gov.uk.

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, and conform to all local and national development policies. For more information, the DCLG have produced a guidance note answering some frequently asked questions on brownfield registers.

The regulations that introduced the requirement for Brownfield Land Registers can be found here: Town and Country Planning (Brownfield Land Register) Regulations 2017.

The register will be compiled by no later than 31 December 2017 and will be reviewed and updated at least once a year.

Permission in principle

The Brownfield Land Register must 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 will contain those sites where permission in principle (PiP) has been granted by the Council. Not all sites listed in part 1 of the register will be granted PiP.

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 here: Town and Country Planning (Permission in Principle) Order 2017.
