Brownfield Land Register

What is the Brownfield Land Register?

Since December 2017 the Council has been required by Government to have a Brownfield Land Register showing a list of previously developed sites that are available and potentially suitable for housing development across the District.  Once in place the Register will be maintained and reviewed at least once a year to make sure it is up to date.

How are sites chosen?

Brownfield sites that are more than 0.25 ha and suitable for housing led development that are allocated in the Local Plan or have planning consent are included in the 2018 Register, see below.

As part of the annual review the District Council asked local communities, town and parish councils, landowners, residents, developers and organisations to put forward an expression of interest where they know of sites in the Derbyshire Dales that could be included in the Brownfield Land Register 2018.  The sites suggested were  assessed against the policies in the Derbyshire Dales Local Plan 2017 and any national policy and guidance.  Any site or building must also meet the following Brownfield Land Regulation (4) criteria;

If you have any sites that you consider would meet the criteria and would like to put forward for the 2019 register, please use one of the Expressions of Interest forms below and email or contact localplan@derbyshiredales.gov.uk .

Sites within the Peak District National Park

The Peak District National Park Authority is responsible for the Brownfield Land Register for sites that are in the Derbyshire Dales District but are within the Peak District National Park.  Please see the following link for more information:

What is Brownfield Land?

Brownfield land is also known as Previously Developed Land and is defined by the Government in Annex 2 of the National Planning Policy Framework as:

Land which is or was occupied by a permanent structure, including the curtilage of the developed land (although it should not be assumed that the whole of the curtilage should be developed) and any associated fixed surface infrastructure. This excludes: land that is or has been occupied by agricultural or forestry buildings; land that has been developed for minerals extraction or waste disposal by landfill purposes where provision for restoration has been made through development control procedures; land in built-up areas such as private residential gardens, parks, recreation grounds and allotments; and land that was previously-developed but where the remains of the permanent structure or fixed surface structure have blended into the landscape in the process of time.”

Brownfield Land Register (Part One) December 2018

Part One of the Register has all of the sites that we consider are suitable, available and achieveable, and are greater than 0.25 hectare of brownfield land and have a capacity of five or more dwellings in line with the Brownfield Land Regulations criteria paragraph 4.  Some are allocated in the Local Plan and some have the benefit of planning consent.

You can see a PDF map of each the brownfield sites on the Register (Part One) by following the links in the table.

**Development at this site will extend beyond 2033, assumed completion of circa 540 dwellings 2017-2033.

***Development at this site is recognised as not "deliverable" as defined by paragraph 5, Schedule 2 of the 2017 Brownfield Land Regulations as "there is no reasonable prospect that residential development will take place on the land within 5 years of the entry date". 

Brownfield Land Register (Part Two)

Part Two of the register is optional and allows us to select sites from Part One and grant Permission in Principle (PiP) for housing led development.  PiP will set out the principles of development in terms of the use, location and amount of development.  However planning permission is not granted until Technical Details Consent is applied and approved by the Council.

We do not have any sites in Part Two though we may in the future, this is reviewed annually.
