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

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 email email@example.com.
