Unlocking Potential: Best Practice for Brownfield Land Registers
CPRE campaigns for a beautiful and living countryside and we do that by working to protect, promote and enhance our towns and countryside to make them better places to live, work and enjoy. As part of this we have long campaigned for prioritising use of brownfield land for housing because we believe it stops the waste of precious countryside.
This new 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 government could be doing far more to identify more brownfield land and make the task more efficient in in the process.
