Brownfield land register

Brownfield land register

We have identified brownfield sites that may be suitable for residential development.

'Brownfield' sites are areas of land that have been developed before but are no longer in use, and could be redeveloped to provide housing.

Sometimes the land may be contaminated, or may have empty or derelict buildings on it.

Our register of brownfield land, which you can download below, shows up-to-date information on previously developed land that is suitable for housing (subject to planning permission).  

Brownfield land register

All local planning authorities are required to produce and publish a brownfield land register for their area. The council has used its Land Availability Assessment (LAA) and the Local Plan 'Call for Sites' consultation to help identify relevant brownfield sites in the borough. 

What is 'previously developed land'?

Previously developed land is considered to be land which is or was occupied by a permanent structure, including the curtilage of the developed land and any associated fixed surface infrastructure. It is important to note that residential curtilage does not constitute previously developed land.

Identifying sites to be included in the register

The register has been prepared in accordance with the Town and Country Planning (Brownfield Land Register) Regulations 2017, using publicly available information and taking any representations received into account. Only sites that meet the assessment criteria set out in the regulations are included on the register. The criteria look at whether a site is:

  • Sufficient in size - at least 0.25 hectares in size or capable of holding at least 5 dwellings.
  • Achievable – the development is likely to take place within 15 years of being entered onto the register.
  • Available – the owner or developer has expressed an intention to sell or develop the land and there are no known ownership issues or legal impediments to residential development.
  • Suitable for residential development – the site is allocated for development in a local development plan document, has planning permission for residential development, has a grant of permission in principle, or in the opinion of the local planning authority is considered appropriate for residential development taking account of the impact on various factors such as the natural and historic environment and amenity.

Brownfield land registers are presented in two parts. Part 1 provides a comprehensive list of all Brownfield sites in Chesterfield that are suitable for housing development. Part 2 provides a list of those brownfield sites included on Part 1 where the council has granted ‘permission in principle’.  The council has not granted permission in principle to any of the sites in Part 1 at this stage and as such Part 2 has not been completed.

The register will help provide transparent information to developers and communities and encourage investment in the area. For information on the sites and their development potential, please speak to the forward planning team.
