Following the Housing and Planning Act 2016, the Town and Country Planning (Register of Previously Developed Land) Regulations 2017 came into force on 16th April 2017, initiating the requirement for councils to produce Brownfield Registers. 

The Brownfield Register regulations follow the introduction of the Permission in Principle regulations (15th April 2017) which will allow an ‘in principle’ determination of proposals on sites contained on the register.

All Local Planning Authorities must publish a Brownfield Register by 31st December 2017.

Cushman & Wakefield has created a note that sets out the purpose and function of Brownfield Registers and the opportunity to promote sites for residential-led (including mixed use) development in 2017.
