Shropshire Council

Brownfield Land Register


The Town and Country Planning (Brownfield Land Register) Regulations 2017 ('the Regulations') place a responsibility on the Council to prepare and maintain a register of brownfield sites.

The Regulations state that a Council's Register must be published by 31 December 2017 and that it may consist of two parts:

  • Part 1 - all brownfield sites which are 'suitable', 'available', and 'achievable' for residential development which could be delivered within 15 years; and
  • Part 2 - any brownfield sites which are given 'permission in principle'. Inclusion on Part 2 would grant permission in principle for residential development (the scale to be determined by the Council) and the landowner/developer would have to apply for 'technical details consent' before any development could commence. 

The Brownfield Land Register is updated at least annually.

Part 1 of the Register

Brownfield sites included in Part 1 of the Register have been identified through a variety of sources, including:

  • Selected SAMDev Plan Allocations without Planning Permission as at the 31 March 2019.
  • Selected Sites with Planning Permission as at the 31 March 2019.
  • Selected Sites with Prior Approval as at the 31 March 2019.
  • Selected Lapsed Planning Permissions.
  • Selected Strategic Sites identified during the ongoing Local Plan Review.
  • Selected Sites from within the Strategic Land Availability Assessment (SLAA).

If you consider that there are any further brownfield sites which are suitable for inclusion within Part 1 of the Register, please submit the site using the Strategic Land Availability Assessment Proforma.

Any brownfield sites submitted will be considered when the Register is next updated.

Part 1 of the Register is available to download from the related documents section on this page, along with a link to a map indicating the location and extent of each site is provided under the Related information section on this page.

Please Note: Inclusion of a site within Part 1 of the Brownfield Land Register is without prejudice to the Local Plan process or the determination of any planning application on the site.

Part 2 of the Register

There is no requirement to place any sites on Part 2 of the Register.

At this point in time Shropshire Council has not produced Part 2 of the Register, as there are no brownfield sites which we currently want to offer ‘Permission in Principle’ status, although we will keep this under review.

There is a formal process which must be complied with in order to provide a site ‘Permission in Principle’ and this has not been undertaken for any sites in Shropshire.
