The Town and Country Planning (Brownfield Land Register) Regulations 2017 (‘the register’) place a duty on each local planning authority responsible for determining applications for housing development to prepare, maintain and publish a register of previously developed land (commonly known as brownfield land) which is suitable for residential development. 

The regulations state that the council's register must be published by 31 December 2017 and that it may consist of two parts:

Part 1 all sites which are 'suitable', 'available', and 'achievable' for residential development which could be delivered within 15 years; and

Part 2  any sites which are given 'permission in principle'. Inclusion on part 2 would grant permission in principle for residential development (the scale to be determined by the council) and the land owner/developer would have to apply for 'technical details consent' before any development could commence.

There is no requirement to place any sites on Part 2 of the Register. The council does not intend to produce the second part of the register at present.

Bromley’s Brownfield Register Part 1 was published in December 2017 and will be reviewed annually. An overview of the Brownfield Register can be viewed on the Greater London Authority’s Mapping System.
