Brownfield Register

The Town & Country Planning (Brownfield Land Register) Regulations 2017 introduced a duty for local planning authorities to prepare, maintain and publish a register of brownfield land within its area. These sites have been assessed by Wealden District Council as the local planning authority as being appropriate for residential development and have planning permission for residential development.

To ensure compliance with The Conservation of Habitats and Species Regulations 2017, which relate to both plans and projects, brownfield sites that do not have planning permission have not been included on the brownfield register on a precautionary basis. This is because it is not currently possible to conclude whether such sites are suitable for development. This is due to it not being possible to determine existing traffic movements associated with the sites without detailed information being provided by a developer to allow a Habitats Regulations Assessment to be undertaken to establish the sites suitability for residential development.

It is a requirement of the Regulations that the register is updated at least once a year. The latest Brownfield Land Register is available to view below:
