Brownfield Land Register
The Government requires Councils to publish a Brownfield Register which contains all deliverable brownfield sites for housing that have been identified in a Council's area.
What is Brownfield Land?
Brownfield land is also known as Previously Developed Land, or PDL, and is defined in the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) as 'Land which is or was occupied by a permanent structure, including the curtilage of the developed land (although it should not be assumed that the whole of the curtilage should be developed) and any associated fixed surface infrastructure.' There are exceptions to this, which include agricultural or forestry buildings, private residential gardens, recreation grounds and allotments.
South Staffordshire Brownfield Register
We have now published our Part 1 Brownfield Land Register and associated site maps. Sites on the Part 1 Brownfield Land Register have been taken from the Council's latest housing land supply evidence, which is a database of all known potential residential development sites across the District. This database is updated each year with information and the current most up to date information is based at the 31st March 2019, which is line with our annual monitoring requirements.
The Strategic Planning Team manages and maintains a register of persons who have an interest in local planning documents (Local Plan Database); those who wish to register land for future development on our Self and Custom Build Register and/or Strategic Housing and Employment Land Availability Assessment (SHELAA); and regarding Empty Properties. In order to do this in an effective way we will need to collect and use personal information about you. For more information about how we process this data see Strategic Planning Team - Data Protection.
