Brownfield land register

Following legislation which came into force in April 2017,  we’re required to prepare, maintain and publish a register which contains information on previously developed land that may be considered appropriate for residential development, known as the Brownfield Land Register. There are two parts to the register:

  • Part 1 includes land which is 0.25 hectares or larger and is considered available, suitable and achievable for residential development, in line with the criteria set out within the legislation
  • Part 2 includes land from part 1 of the register that has been through a publicity and consultation process  and granted planning permission in principle

We don’t have any sites on Part 2 of the register at the moment. We’ll review Part 2 of the register each year.

If you’d like us to consider including a piece of land into the Brownfield Land Register, you can email our Planning Policy team at localplans@swale.gov.uk. You’ll need to include:

  • the location of the land, with the site itself outlined in red
  • what the land is and has been used for
  • the number of dwellings the site would be able to accommodate
