Recycling our land: the state of brownfield report, 2021

The 2021 edition of CPRE’s annual reporting on the status and potential of brownfield land.

The report finds that brownfield land continues to be a perpetually-regenerating resource, with the capacity of brownfield land for housing development continuing to grow since last year. Much of this capacity already has planning permission and can be found in the Midlands and north of the country, providing a valuable opportunity for levelling-up as well as protecting our countryside and green spaces.

The full data on all local authorities’ brownfield land registers used in our analysis is available here, and key tables are here.
