Brownfield Register

Local Planning Authorities must publish brownfield land registers which identify land suitable for residential and mixed-use developments.

A brownfield register is made up of at least one, and sometimes two parts:

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

There is no requirement to place any sites on Part 2 of the Register, and Haringey Council does not currently intend to produce a Part 2 Register.

The presence of a site on a brownfield register does not alter any current planning designation or pre-empt the plan-making process.

The Register was informed by adopted Site Allocations in the council's Local Plan and suitable planning permissions as of February 2021.
