This report presents Part 1 of the Brownfield
Land Register (BLR) which the Sub-Committee is asked to note as an
evidence base document. The report also considers whether any
suites are suitable for promoting to part 2 of the BLR i.e. for
permission in principle (for housing development) and the process
and timescale proposed.
Upon the invitation of the Chair, the Planning Policy Team Leader presented the report which provided a 2021 update to the 2020 Register. It was explained that the production of a Brownfield Land Register was a requirement under the Town & Country Planning (Brownfield Land Register) Regulations, 2017. The Register was to be established in two parts (Part 1 being sites in principle suitable for housing, and Part 2 being permissions in principle) and was to include all brownfield sites that were suitable for residential development. It was confirmed that there were 20 sites on the register (3 new sites which met the criteria had been identified for addition) and 9 sites had been removed because they had been implemented or were not available.
The recommendations were then proposed by Councillor Gunner and seconded by Councillor Hughes. By unanimous vote,
RESOLVED - To
1. Note the 2021 Brownfield Land Register (Part 1);
2. Agree for Officers keep under review the Brownfield Land Register in order to determine whether preparation of (Part 2) including the carrying out of consultation and publicity requirements, in line with the Brownfield Land Register Regulations 2017 is justified.
