Brownfield land register

The Government has introduced a requirement for all Local Authorities to prepare a brownfield land register for their area. 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 September 2019 and will be updated on an annual basis. The data is provided under the Open Government Licence.

The register consists of two parts:

  • part one is a list of sites which could be considered suitable for housing
  • part two is made up of sites taken forward from part one of the register and given permission in principle (PIP)

There are currently no sites included in part two 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
