Register of Brownfield Land

Brownfield Land Register

The council is required to maintain a register of brownfield land (previously developed land) that is considered suitable for residential development. The register is intended to help house builders identify potentially suitable brownfield sites for development, provide certainty to local communities and encourage investment in local areas.

The Brownfield Land Register can be made up of two parts:

  • Part 1 is a list of brownfield sites in Hambleton that are considered to be suitable for housing irrespective of their planning status; and

  • Part 2 is a list of sites that additionally are granted Permission in Principle.

Subject to a subsequent approval of Technical Details Consent, sites with Permission in Principle will have planning permission for housing development or housing led development.

What sites can go on the register?

Sites which are entered onto the register must meet the following criteria:

  • the land is at least 0.25 hectares or is capable of supporting at least 5 dwellings (there is discretion to enter smaller sites if all the other criteria are met);

  • the land is suitable for residential development;

  • the land is available for residential development; and

  • residential development of the land is achievable.

The Hambleton register

The council first published its brownfield register in December 2017. The register is reviewed annually.

Part 1 of the register has been completed for Hambleton (outside the North York Moors National Park) and the 2019 update is available below. No sites have been included on part 2 of the register at this time.
