Brownfield Land Register

Each local planning authority in England is required to prepare, maintain and publish a register of previously developed (brownfield) land suitable for housing, known as the Brownfield Land Register. They consider that the purpose of the Brownfield Land Register is to provide up-to-date and consistent information on sites that local authorities consider appropriate for residential development; they published guidance and a Brownfield Land Registers data standard on 28 July 2017.

The council approved its Brownfield Land Register at Executive Cabinet on 13 December 2017, and it identifies land with the potential to accommodate 2,755 net additional dwellings across the borough.

All of the sites on the Brownfield Land Register will be included in the comprehensive Strategic Housing and Economic Land Availability Assessment (SHELAA) that will be published by the council in 2018. This will inform the next version of Tameside’s local plan and the revised Greater Manchester Spatial Framework. The emerging SHELAA includes dwellings on brownfield sites that are under construction, and dwellings on sites that are a mix of brownfield and green field; the brownfield register does not include these given government guidance.
