The Government has introduced a requirement for all Local Authorities to prepare a Brownfield Land Register for their area and publish it by 31st December 2017. The Brownfield Register for Harrogate district has now been published and can be viewed below.

The Brownfield Land Register provides publicly available information on brownfield (previously developed) land that is suitable for housing. The council has used its Strategic Housing and Economic Land Availability Assessment (SHELAA) and current planning permission information to help identify brownfield sites in the district.

The register has been prepared in line with the requirements set out in the Town and Country Planning (Brownfield Land Register) Regulations 2017. Only sites that meet the assessment criteria set out in these regulations are included on the register. Information on the register is correct up to the end of November 2017 and will be updated on an annual basis.

The register consists of two parts:

  • Part 1 is a list of sites which could be considered suitable for housing
  • Part 2 is made up of sites taken forward from Part 1 of the register and given Permission in Principle (PIP)

There are currently no sites included in Part 2 of the Harrogate Brownfield Land Register.

Further information can be found within national Planning Practice Guidance on the Brownfield Land Register and Permission in Principle
