The council is part of the government's Brownfield Register pilot programme. The register will help promote the redevelopment of sites suitable for housing. The pilot programme will help identify issues and possible solutions ahead of a national requirement for all councils to compile a register, that the government intends to implement in the next year.
As part of this pilot we are required to publish our register, which is in the form of a 'csv' spreadsheet so the data is freely available for use by everyone with an interest in brownfield land.
In compiling the pilot register we followed the methodology, guidance and data specification set out in the Pilot Brownfield Register Manual and the Pilot Brownfield Register Data Specification Guidance.
