Brownfield Land Register

The Government requires all Councils to hold a Brownfield Land Register. The Register is intended to help housebuilders quickly identify brownfield sites in Exeter that are deliverable for housing development. The aim is to speed up and maximise the construction of new homes built.

All sites included on the register have been assessed as meeting the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) definition of previously developed land (brownfield land).

Registers are broken down into Part 1 and Part 2:


Part 1

All Local Planning Authorities are required to complete Part 1 of the Register. This part of the Register includes sites which are considered suitable, available and achievable for residential development. Inclusion on the register does not affect the planning status of the sites. Exeter City Council has prepared Part 1 of the Brownfield Land Register.


Part 2

Part 2 of the Register is optional for Local Planning Authorities and grants permission in principle for residential development. Exeter City Council has not produced Part 2 of the Register.


The Brownfield Land Register will be reviewed annually.
