Planning reporting

Brownfield land register

Buckinghamshire Council's brownfield land register (BLR) provides information about brownfield land that we think is suitable for housing.

The register is a list of previously developed sites that are available and potentially suitable for housing development, including:

  • sites with full planning permission
  • site with outline planning permission
  • sites without planning permission

Sites must also meet specific criteria set out in the legislation before we can include them on the register.

The register must be made publicly available and kept up to date.

It has 2 parts:

Part 1

Part 1 is list of brownfield sites that we consider suitable for housing regardless of their planning status.

Adding a site to part 1 of the register does not mean it will automatically be granted permission in principle.

Part 2

Part 2 is a subset of part 1 and only includes sites from part 1 that we have granted permission in principle.

We are not currently granting permission in principle for any of the sites included on the brownfield land register.

Nominating a site

To add a site to the register, we must assess the previously developed land against a set of eligibility criteria, regardless of its planning status.

The site must:

  • have an area of at least 0.25 hectares or be capable of supporting at least 5 dwellings
  • be considered suitable (by the council) for housing development regardless of planning status
  • be available – there should be no legal barriers and the landowner should have expressed an intention to develop the land
  • be achievable – capable of development within 15 years of being entered onto the register
