Our Local Plan has now been submitted for examination.

Brownfield Land Register

Local authorities are required to publish a Brownfield Land Register at least once each year. These list all of the brownfield (previously-developed) sites within an area, where larger than 0.25 hectares or with a capacity of 5 or more dwellings, which in the opinion of the local authority would be suitable for development and have a prospect of coming forward within a 15-year period. The Register is prepared in accordance with the Town and Country Planning (Brownfield Land Register) Regulations 2017 - http://www.legislation.gov.uk/uksi/2017/403/contents/made.

A Brownfield Land Register consists of two parts. Part 1 is mandatory, and lists all brownfield sites which meet the requirements above. Part 2 is optional, and allows planning authorities to grant Permission in Principle (PiP) to any site on Part 1 of the register. A grant of PiP establishes the acceptability of development on a site, although this process still requires developers to submit a subsequent Technical Details Consent prior to starting work in order to consider issues such as design and parking.

If you are a landowner or agent wishing to promote a site for inclusion on the Brownfield Land Register, please contact Planning Policy via planningpolicy@welhat.gov.uk or by calling 01707 357532. Promoted sites will be considered for inclusion in the next review of the Brownfield Land Register in late 2018.
 

Brownfield Land Register 2017

Welwyn Hatfield's first Brownfield Land Register will be presented to the Council's Cabinet Planning & Parking Panel on 14 December 2017, and will be formally published shortly thereafter. In advance of the 14 December meeting, the proposed Brownfield Land Register 2017 can be viewed below. For 2017, Welwyn Hatfield's Register only consists of Part 1 sites - there are no sites on Part 2 of the register, meaning that the Council is not proposing to grant Permission in Principle (PiP) to any sites this year.

The Government's National Data Standard for Brownfield Land Registers requires each local authority to publish its register in a prescribed format, as a .csv file. Whilst this file format is useful for large-scale data manipulation, it does not allow the Register to be easily read. The Council has therefore decided to provide the register in a .xls format as well.
