Unlocking potential: best practice for brownfield land registers

We’ve long campaigned for prioritising the use of brownfield land for housing because we believe it stops the waste of countryside.

This research, commissioned from HTA Design LLP, examines the identification and assessment of brownfield sites by local planning authorities in light of the Brownfield Land Register Regulations, 2017.

It finds that national and local governments could be doing far more to identify more brownfield land and make the task more efficient in the process.
